Research Methods Supercourse

Publish Soon, Publish Often, a Guide to Scientific Publications


To publish in international journals one needs expertise in research methods.  However, in most countries there are few  trained in research methods.  We have built a research methods Supercourse and help desk to assist potential researchers in the development, data collection and analysis of  studies

Mentoring:  We initiated a new way to get broad exposure for RMLA.  When someone get stuck in an area that not known or know little, someone may do a Google Scholar search and then write to ~10 of the experts who has publications on this topic. 

Research methods Library of Alexandria Mentoring Program - students across Africa find people in their area of research and write to them under the auspices of the RMLA.  E.g.

Dear Dr. Smith
I was very impressed with your article on antigen recognition in the mouse that was published in Science.  I plan to do something similar, but would like your advice.
 I am collaborating with the Research Methods Library of Alexandria to improve  research productivity  in Africa. http://ssc.bibalex.org/helpdesk/introduction.jsf
Here are some of questions
1.  I was planning to use a 2 x 2  crossover design. I was wondering what your thoughts might be
2. How many mice should I have for each cell.

We have a lot of faculty in Africa who need mentoring, but we do not have the resources. 
Thank you very much


In general, mentors may have not more 3-4 people a month asking for help. Also the african researchers are constructing themselves the community of interest.
