If you want to go far, go together

There is an African proverb which translates as “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.

I found these wonderful words on a site which encourages researchers to share ideas about useful tools. You can find these at researchmasterminds.com.

This site is run by Benita Olivier from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and it links to a YouTube channel hosting some marvellously easy to follow and practical videos she has made. So if you like short videos, this is worth checking out. I particularly liked the how to section.

As well as the how to’s, the site includes sections on life and academia, what prompted her to set up the site and ample opportunities to send in suggestions or ask questions.

The how to part has nine subsections with a huge variety of information within each one. What immediately attracted my attention were:

Academic tools and resources

Data management and, of course,

Dissemination of findings

So please go ahead and explore this site.

There isn’t much point in my describing any more of it as it is all there in front of you. Enjoy!
