Introduction and explanation
The ISPSO Research Inventory Project was announced In October 2009 as a new activity for members of ISPSO. A liaison is in place to make sure it will be coordinated into the ISPSO Online Library. Responsible for this initiative is Lilian Hupkens, who conducted the surveys and provided yearly updates. This is the February 2012 abbreviated update.

There are three categories:
1st Category, Finished Dissertations and Theses
2nd Category: Work in Progress, Doctoral Dissertation in progress
3rd Category: Work in Progress, research not linked to academic title
The aims of the Research Inventory Project are
- to have a better overview of research that has been done by ISPSO members
- to make the research accessible and available to the members
- to have a better overview of "work in progress", who is doing what in which country and which part of the world
- to promote the ISPSO body of knowledge
- to stimulate new research being undertaken
- to support those with “work in progress” by providing peer support.
This overview will be updated regularly and will be maintained by Lilian. If you would like to add your research, academic or non-academic, send an email to moc.sc|tlusnocsnekpuh#moc.sc|tlusnocsnekpuh and you will receive the questionnaire.
