About the Blog

The National Research Database

The purpose of the National Research Database of Zimbabwe is to give broad access to and provide extensive information on Zimbabwean research, whatever the subject and place of research.  Researchers are encouraged to upload their research papers/publications to the research database where possible. They may submit details of their work even when it is not possible to load the paper. Research Databases like National Research Database of Zimbabwe (NRDZ) raise the visibility of research and help to maximise its input. They complement the traditional academic publishing and scholarly communication channels.

You can use the link on the top of the page to access the NRDZ or you can do so by clicking here.

This blog

All submissions to the NRDZ will have a corresponding post automatically created for it within this blog.  The aim is to encourage discussions around the different submissions made.  This in turn should add value to the NRDZ and the research hosted on it.  All registered users on the NRDZ are allowed to post comments on the blog posts as well as respond to comments posted by other users.

The listing of all the posts can be found by clicking here.

You can also check the archives for posts that were made earlier.

Researcher Directory

A directory of the registered researchers can also be accessed through this blog, allowing you to search through this listing on a number of different criteria.  As a registered user, you can also update your research profile once logged on.

Since this blog is a complement of the NRDZ, if you need to create an account to allow you to update your research profile, you need to do so via the NRDZ.  Click here to create an account on the NRDZ.  Once you create an account, you can use your credentials to participate in discussions on this blog, and to update your research profile. .
