The Anti-Corruption Research Network (ACRN) is an online platform and the global meeting point for a research community that spans a wide range of disciplines and institutions. The ACRN is a podium to present innovative findings and approaches in corruption/anti-corruption research and a sounding board to present ideas and questions as well as a marketplace to announce jobs, events, courses and funding opportunities. The spotlight section also looks at specific corruption issues and highlights key research findings and contributions. The online platform is designed to ensure a high degree of user input and interaction. The ACRN’s registered users can comment on posted items and are able to create their own user profiles in order to connect with other corruption experts across the globe. Furthermore, users can subscribe to targeted information streams from the web platform using the RSS function. The forums can be used by members to seek peer advice and brainstorm about new ideas, while the calendar and the Marketplace can be used to share information on upcoming conferences, funding opportunities or job postings. We hope that the ACRN will enable policy-makers, practitioners and journalists to gain easy, efficient access to relevant academic research and help the anti-corruption research community to forge stronger networks across disciplines and with policy makers by using these tools.
