How to Join a Research Center

The system restricts memberships to only one Research Center per user. View tips on choosing the right research centerFor all other groups, including campuses, registered users may join as many as they like. 

If you have already joined a Research Center and would like to transfer to another center, please contact for assistance. 

Once you know which center you want to join, follow these instructions.  

  1. Log in to the website
  2. Navigate to the home page for the Research Center you'd like to join.
  3. At the yop-left of your preferred Research Center home page is a link that says “Request Group Membership.” Click that button to begin.
  4. A page will appear with a button that says "Join." To continue, click the Join button. If you change your mind, you can click canel or navigate away from the page to stop the process.
  5. Once processed by the system, you will receive an email with additional information. This usually only takes a few minutes.
  6. For troubleshooting, or to leave a group or transfer to another, please reach out to us at

Well, none of your instructions work.  I have yet to find out which center I'm in, as there is no profile I can access and I have seen NO Join button anywhere.

I'm sorry for your frustration. For logged in users, the toolbar at the top has a button with your name on it. Clicking that displays the shortcut to view or edit your own profile, which displays your center as a link. Your current center is the Center for Leadership Studies and Educational Research. It looks like you joined it in December 2014.

Here is the link:

Shauna, I have been trying for days to change from the CLAR hub to the CEITR.   I follow all the directions and do not see the link for "joining".  

Can you help?    732.977.4761

The instructions don't seem to work to join the American College of Healthcare Executives. Do you know if that is located here somewhere?

I left a message that I could not enter the ISBN number in the publication section to add peer reviewed journals.  Do I use NONE or where do I find the number?  It is not on the published journal article.  Also, how do I find what research center i am in?

Is there a web conference about adding publications for academic review which is important?

I am sure I have added my research multiple times but have seen none appear in my profile.

Has the research hub visibility changed.  I used to show up on the main page, but now it seems we are sorted by research center.  Is that correct?   Dr. Susan Steele-Moses

Spelling correction needed for enumeration three (3): 

Should read--->> "top-left" NOT yop-left, please excuse the caps.  They (caps) are not intentional, but only to bring awareness to the correction as needed for proper grammar.
