Research Queries on BPN

Berkeley Parents Network often publishes requests from researchers, authors, entrepreneurs and others who are seeking to interview parents or kids. Many of our parent subscribers are interested in participating in these. If your work is related to children or parenting and has interest for our parent subscribers, you can subscribe to BPN as a Community Subscriber and post an announcement on the BPN website.  Announcements are publicly available on our website for 30 days, and new announcements are sent out in the weekly newsletter mailed to all subscribers. See About Announcements and Events for details.


1. Subscribe to BPN

Some subscriptions are free and some are not, depending on the type of business or organization you represent. BPN is a nonprofit -- paid community subscriptions are our only income, so businesses seeking parents on BPN will need to purchase a subscription. But we do offer free subscriptions to nonprofits such as research universities. (For more information about subscribing, see About BPN Community Subscribers.)
