Research AMP is a purpose-built research area mapping platform for academics in the humanities and social sciences who want to bridge disciplines, grow their scholarly networks, and share their research. Research AMP turns up the volume on your research, bringing it to the public’s ear. 

Research AMP is a partnership between the Social Science Research Council and Digital Scholar. The framework for Research AMP was first launched through SSRC’s successful disinformation research mapping platform, MediaWell, and later through the Just Tech platform. Building on the success of these projects, SSRC and Digital Scholar developed the Research AMP platform in order to offer it as a free “plug and publish” website toolkit for lowering the barriers to interdisciplinary, public scholarship. 

For more examples of how Research AMP can be used, see our partner sites.
