CWRC aims to make digital research methods broadly accessible, and to develop an active community of researchers engaged in exploring the potential of collaboration online.

  • The general public and citizen scholars can access most of CWRC content and use many of its tools. Annotation of content is available in some contexts. Opportunities for contributing to and participating in CWRC are in the pipeline.
  • CWRC members are assigned their own private research spaces in which to explore the possibilities of researching online, and have access to the shared materials of the CWRC Commons.
  • CWRC projects are groups of researchers who are collaborating on shared sets of materials.

The development of CWRC involved more than 100 researchers and collaborators from a range of disciplines.
More information on types of membership can be found in the Terms and Conditions.
