There are quite a few pro-integrity groups out there. Children's rights groups, ethics groups, intactivist groups, and more. Every country – every state and major city, even – has local groups and chapters of national groups. Some groups focus on protesting. Some focus on advertising and mailing. Others focus on research or on defending children in court.
But with some exceptions, the community as a whole suffers from a major problem: scattered research. Hard-to-find articles. Sourceless memes. Outdated sites.
It's time for a change.
The i2 Research Hub (www.i2researchhub.org) is an organized pro-integrity community hub for storing and accessing articles.
It is for all groups and individuals – neither endorsing nor denouncing any of them. No Facebook group, no promotional campaigns. It is not competition – it's here to serve everyone.
Our system stores links to the original website, searchable full article text, and downloadable PDF versions of each article. You can also search for articles by author or publication.
But that's not all. Users can easily submit new articles with nothing more than a web address. They'll be added within 24 hours. And it's easy to create an account (especially if you simply "Login with Facebook") and get membership benefits.
But that's not all. We are purchasing/obtaining access to restricted articles – normally only available for ~$30 apiece or with expensive subscriptions on JSTOR, Wiley, or Project Muse. Everyone will be able to access data and abstracts for these premium articles, and the full text of these premium articles will be available to all subscribing i2 Research Hub members, both standard members ($3/month) and premium members ($10/month). We're adding at least 25 premium articles this week!
But even that's not all. We've got a Zotero library connected to this hub – which means automatic citations of the hub's articles! Just use the CITE THIS ARTICLE area in the article's sidebar (under the article on mobile devices). We check every field after the data is automatically added when articles are submitted. Right now, we've added APA, AMA, Chicago, and Turabian citations, and if you need another common format, just ask and we'll add it within 24 hours. Members also get Zotero access if they wish, meaning printing bibliographies becomes as simple as a few clicks.
Whether you're an individual researcher, someone looking to share articles on social media, or an activist or educational organization, come check out the i2 Research Hub's free services today – and help us make it an even more potent pro-integrity resource!
