We recommend that you:

  • Register on our website. Use your institutional email address (so that we can recognise you as a member). This will enable you to do all of the following...
  • Complete a personal profile and publish it to our Membership Directory. Use it to enhance your online profile and to identify others with similar interests
  • Sign up to receive email updates (Vitae news/ researcher bulletin). If you didn't request updates when you registered on our site,
  • Follow us on Twitter: @Vitae_News, #Vitae16. Look out for the Twitter chats we run from time-to-time
  • Check back often for updates. Our Focus on page changes topic every 2 or 3 months and highlights new and existing material on important topics. Look there for details of online hangouts and chats or other ways to engage with other researchers.
