Call for participation: International Research Exchange Index

We invite you to help establish a new resource for everyone who is interested in writing research.
The Research Exchange Index, or REx, will be a digital compendium of contemporary writing research that features information collected, edited, and published every five years as a searchable database. Created for teachers, scholars, administrators, and others involved in writing education, REx invites contributions from researchers across grade-levels, institutions, and methodologies.
To learn more please join us at NCTE, where we will launch the REx data collection site during Session H. 11 in the Chicago Hilton/Grand Tradition Room (Lobby Level). You can also participate by
  • spreading the word to members of your professional constituencies;
  • visiting the site <http://researchexchange.colostate.edu/> and uploading information about your own research;
  • becoming an Acquisitions Editor and helping build the REx database over the next 18 months, from November 2011 to May 1, 2013;
  • becoming an Editorial Reviewer and, starting in May 2013, helping bring REx, Volume 1 to publication.
Data collection for the first volume of REx begins on November 19th, 2011 and continues through May 1st, 2013, and we hope you will contribute. We also hope you will contact us if you would like to become an Acquisitions Editor or an Editorial Reviewer or if you have any questions.
Best,
Jenn Fishman, Joan Mullin, and Mike Palmquist, the REx Editors
