Question for Research Ethics Monthly readers: Win for your institution a new 12-month subscription to https://www.ahrecs.vip0

Posted by Admin in AHRECS Admin, Human Research Ethics, Research Integrity, Services on December 23, 2019 / Keywords: , ,
 

Prof. Mark Israel and Dr Gary Allen

We would like to encourage institutions to try out the ahrecs.vip set of resources. We also would like to crowdsource additional material and request the help of members of the research ethics community of practice. People like you. So, if you would like an opportunity to win a new 12-month subscription to ahrecs.vip, please send us your answer to one of the following questions:

  1. The best thing our HREC ever did was…
  2. The most important change I’d make to how my institution deals with research ethics is…

Your response to either of these questions should be between 50 and 500 words and can take the form of a short briefing note, a poem or a video recording with emphasis on either entertainment or information or both. Your submission must be received by 5pm Friday 31 March 2020.

Entries will be judged by members of the AHRECS team.  The best entry will win for their institution a new 12-month subscription to https://www.ahrecs.vip (valued at $350).  The April edition of the Research Ethics Monthly will include excerpts from some of our favourite entries and AHRECS reserves the right to draw on material within the entries and reproduce within the ahrecs.vip site while acknowledging the source of the material.

For more information send an email to gary.allen@ahrecs.com.

Update on the new subscribers’ area0

 

We are currently expecting the new service to go live prior to us sending the July 2019 edition of the Research Ethics Monthly.

It is being built by some talented designers and coders we are excited to be working with.

The service will be located at AHRECS.vip, will be far more easily browsed and used, with an annual subscription of $360 (Plus GST and a 2% charge if you pay by credit card).

We will have more about this new service in the next edition.  Email VIP@ahrecs.com if you have any questions.

Requesting your input0

 

We’re preparing to work on a new version of the subscribers’ area, so we’d appreciate hearing your thoughts and ideas.

Some of you have told us you’d like to subscribe, but your institution’s accounting rules don’t allow for open ended online subscriptions.  Some subscribers have told us that it would be helpful if the listed items were better organised.

We agree, but the Patreon platform doesn’t provide the kind of flexibility to make these kinds of sensible changes.

So, we’re exploring the cost and logistics of creating a subscribers’ area we control. While we work out its details, the key changes will be:

  1. Institutions that wish to access the contents in the subscribers’ area will be sent a tax invoice for a 12-month subscription which would be paid by EFT or PayPal.
  2. The area will be structured in two sections (Human Research Ethics and Research Integrity) each with five subsections:
    1. Commentaries
    2. Professional development material
    3. Images
    4. Audio files
    5. Video files
  3. There will be tools to link to related items, profile items and search the library.

Subscribers to the existing Patreon service can move to the new service at the same level for the remainder of whatever time they have remaining, at no extra cost.

Because we suspect some users of the Patreon service may prefer to stay there, we plan to continue posting items to both Patreon and the new service.

Is the new service something you’d recommend your institution subscribe to?  Before we spend the money to build it, we’re hoping to hear at least 15 institutions are interested in-principle.  Please send an email to patron@ahrecs.com.
