Why do we have such a difficult URL?
Beacause we are academic nerds and hate acronyms… Well, yeah, we agree that it’s not the easiest url, we know. However, we started out with another url and another name for this site based on the acronym “CRA”. However, CRA also stands for “Canada Revenue Agency” (among other things), and thus we received a lot of visitors that don’t really appreciate the beauty of clinical research, and also lots of spammy comments and other stuff that was getting very anoying in the long run… It even caused some troubles with our web server a couple of times, and thus we decided to try another approach. So far so good!
May I contribute?
Yes, you’re more than welcome to suggest ideas, write posts, draw funny cartoons or whatever you’re good at. Please contact us here.
Are you paid to write and publish certain stuff here?
No, definitely not. We started this site because we saw a need for it and wanted to network with others, not to make money. We earn quite a decent amount already 😉 There’s no “secret” company or sponsor involved. However, from time to time we may publish some ads, or recommend some products. Hosting and running a website comes with lots of hard work and some expenses as well… But we’ll never recommend something just because we’ll get paid for it. Our goal is to provide you with transparent information, honest oppinions and reviews.
Our mission is to help the becoming CRA grow their knowledge and fulfillment until they’re buzzing and fizzling with creativity, impact, potential and purpose. We hope that you’ll appreciate this site, and if you do (or don’t) please comment, share or send us a message. We love comments.
Best of luck with your CRA career! And feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.
