ResearchResearch gets Professional

ResearchResearch, the fortnightly journal for all things related to research funding, and database for funding opportunities available to all UK researchers, has had a rebrand. Oh yes. No longer is it the satisfyingly Hellerian ResearchResearch (distant relative of Major Major Major Major), it will now be Research Professional. Ho-hum. We're all professional now. However, you'll be pleased to hear that their 'new logo incorporates a dynamic chevron, which stresses the word Research in our masterbrand and is used to continue this representation across all our product logos, so you know where they come from.' Which is nice.
Unfortunately there's no talk of overhauling the recently overhauled website, which must be one of the clunkiest, most counter intuitive and user unfriendliest on the planet. Despite this hinderance, RP is one of the most comprehensive funding opportunity repositories I know of, and believe me, I've tried a few. If you haven't signed up for their email alert service, give it a go. You've got nothing to lose - except your time, hair, patience...Alternatively contact me, and I'll act as Virgil to your Dante.
