How we can help you

On this page, we set out some of the ways that NCRM can help you, and what you can expect to find on our website. If you know what you are looking for, the easiest way to find it is to simply type some words into the "Search our content" bar at the top of any page.

For researchers and students

Research methods training is at the core of our mission. We host an extensive training database that lists short courses and events in our ongoing training programme, as well as courses run by external organisations. We offer both online and face-to-face training through our network of partners across the UK, and research staff can apply for training bursaries to cover course fees.

NCRM hosts a huge range of free learning resources about research methods. Our collections include a substantial publications database, online tutorials, videos and podcasts. Within each collection, there are further search options.

For trainers and educators

In addition to the resources for learners above, which you may wish to use to support your own teaching, NCRM hosts a collection of resources specifically for trainers. This includes quick reference guides, in-depth reads, case studies and a range of other publications.

We also have a pedagogic research programme targeted specifically at the teaching of research methods, and are actively seeking to build up a community of trainers through the NCRM Pedagogy Network.

If you are developing your own content that might be suitable for inclusion in the NCRM collections, we would love to hear from you – please email us at

For partner organisations and stakeholders

NCRM is committed to knowledge exchange and collaboration with researchers, government, business, charities and the public. View our engagement pages for details of researcher networks, innovation projects, our engagement strategy and ways to get in touch.

Course providers are welcome to publish their events on our training database. To do this, click the "Add event" button and we will review your submission to make sure it is suitable for the database.

We also keen to hear about any methods-related news, which we can publish on our Methods News page or our monthly newsletter. Find out how to contribute.
