(from CIT INFOBITS -- March 2001)


"[T]he new electronic channels of dissemination require different
approaches to communicating your work. Posting research on the
world wide web is one thing - ensuring that people actually read it
implies further challenges." The Global Development Network (GDN)
website "Writing for the Web" helps academic writers communicate
more effectively in the online medium. While many sites on Web
communication focus on commercial applications of the Web, GDN's
focus is on users disseminating research information. "Writing for
the Web" is located at http://www.ids.ac.uk/gdn/tools/writing.htm

The Global Development Network supports and links research and
policy institutes involved in the field of development by providing
training for researchers, hosting a series of regional workshops
focusing on building the capacity of research and policy
institutes, and planning for future activities. For more
