AuthorAid (comment)

AuthorAid is a free scholarly network designed to assist researchers in the Global South to find collaborators and mentors.  It was profiled in the Scholarly Kitchen a couple of days ago.  

Below are links to the Scholarly Kitchen article and to the AuthorAid website.  It would be nice to have something similar for independent scholars everywhere!
