SUBSCRIBE TO THE
CANADIAN SOCIAL RESEARCH NEWSLETTER

Sign up to receive this free weekly newsletter by e-mail or read it online
(including archives back to January 2005).
Each issue includes all links added to this site during the previous week.


How to subscribe to
the Canadian Social Research Newsletter:

1. Go to the Canadian Social Research Newsletter Online Subscription page*.

2. Enter the e-mail address where you wish to receive the newsletter and (if you wish) your name...

3. Click "Subscribe".

4. You should almost immediately receive an e-mail message at that e-mail address that you just entered, inviting you to confirm your subscription.
(This is to prevent someone from subscribing you without your consent.)

Follow the simple instructions to reply.
Ta-da, you're subscribed!

You can also use the same page to unsubscribe later.
This is a free service.

* NOTE: if your e-mail account is with HOTMAIL, YAHOO, SYMPATICO, AOL, or if your office, school or Internet Service Provider uses an aggressive spam filter like SpamAssassin, please read the "Special Note" below concerning spam filters to make sure you don't have any problems with your subscription.

NOTE: if this subscription thing is a terrible source of stress for you or if you just want to deal with "a real person", just send me an e-mail message at the address below requesting subscription and I'll subscribe you myself.
Please try it yourself first, though --- it's a pretty straightforward process...

[* Thanks to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) for allowing me to maintain my mailing list and distribute my weekly newsletter using software on their website. I remain solely responsible for all editorial comments and for the occasional sarcasm or rant...]

SPECIAL NOTE CONCERNING
SPAM FILTERS AND THIS NEWSLETTER:

Your office, school or Internet Service Provider (ISP) may use high-security level anti-spam measures to protect you from viruses, malware and spam.
Unfortunately, this means that most newsletters and most e-mail sent by Bulk (vs individually) to a hidden mailing list (like my Canadian Social Research Newsletter) are rejected, and every week I end up with a list of 25-50 people whose employer, educational institution or ISP has rejected that week's newsletter.

Another email irritant for network security systems is URL shorteners such as Google URL Shortener [ http://goo.gl/ ]. I use this to replace excessively long URLs (usually from database-driven websites) when I prepare the weekly Canadian Social Research Newsletter.

There is a way around this security challenge: copy my e-mail address [ gilseg@rogers.com ] or the subject line that I always use for each issue [ Canadian Social Research Newsletter] into your e-mail software configuration (usually under "Options", "Whitelist" or "Friends List" or something similar) to identify me as a friend (or at least as a non-spammer), so that your network or ISP will allow the newsletter to get through to you. If you signed up for the newsletter from the office or behind a security firewall, try speaking to a technical support person to have my email address added to the network whitelist.

If you *are* behind a security firewall, the simplest way to guarantee that you'll receive my weekly newsletter is to subscribe using your home email address.

Privacy Policy:

I promise not to share this list, nor to send you any junk e-mail.


 

Canadian Social Research Newsletter Archive

What's New and the weekly Canadian Social Research Newsletter
Whenever I add a link to any page on the Canadian Social Research Links site, I copy it to the What's New page. At the beginning of each week, I copy the content directly from that page into the Canadian Social  Research Newsletter and I create an HTML version of the newsletter (see the links immediately below), which I post to my site. The HTML version of the newsletter also serves as an archive for "old" content from the What's New page. Finally, I copy the contents of the newsletter into an email message and send it to the CUPE mail server which disseminates it to all subscribers.


NOTE:

1. I don't maintain the links in past issues of the newsletter, so you'll definitely find some broken ones in there, especially in the older issues.
2. Feel free to link from your website to any of the newsletters below; the URLs are all stable and permanent.

Thanks to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) for allowing me to use their email system to distribute my newsletter.

The remainder of this page (below this box) comprises the table of contents for each issue of the newsletter in 2015, starting with the latest at the top.
