As we have many uncertainties about the most impactful ways to help animals, we would like to see more research to produce evidence on the effectiveness of efforts in animal advocacy. Thus, one of our goals at ACE is to encourage advocates and academics to get excited about animal advocacy research. We do this in a number of ways, including by providing tools and funds needed to carry out high-quality research. We would like to be doing more, however, to build and strengthen relationships between researchers in the animal advocacy community, so that interested parties can easily identify and connect with each other.
To that end, we have established a Research Collaboration Directory. This resource is intended to help connect researchers with mutual interests or complementary skills, and establish partnerships between academics and animal advocates. We invite any interested researchers and advocates to sign up now! By signing up, you are simply agreeing that you are willing to be contacted by other researchers or advocates who might be interested in collaborating with you in some way. No commitments are implied.
Ultimately, we hope this directory will facilitate the development of sustained, productive research relationships that produce insights that improve our ability to help animals effectively. Researchers or advocates who are interested in being listed on this directory are invited to fill out this form.
