NORDP E-List (Listserv) Guidance

Trial Subscription

NORDP is pleased to offer non-NORDP-member Research Development (RD) professionals a free 1-month subscription to the national NORDP listserv. RD professionals include individuals engaged in RD activities (defined at RD Activities), establishing new RD units, developing and/or overseeing RD activities in existing units, or otherwise actively engaged in RD activities.

Submit your trial subscription application by clicking HERE. Your subscription will be activated within 1 business day and you will receive notification via email. The subscription will expire automatically after 30 calendar days unless you become a Member during the trial period.

Listserv Use

NORDP listservs are intended to encourage discussion, networking, and support. The national listserv has a wealth of information, thanks to the collegial sharing of our subscribers.

Receiving Messages

All received messages include the prefix “NORDP E-List...” in the subject field and arrive from “RES_DEV@nordp.memberclicks.net".

Sending Messages

To post an original message to the entire listserv, send to RES_DEV@nordp.memberclicks.net. OR, if you are a Member, go to nordp.org and log in. From the drop down menu under My Features, select E-Lists > *NORDP Research Development, and click “Post a New Message”.

Responding to Messages

When responding to a message posted to the listserv (via Reply or Reply All), your response will be sent to ALL listserv subscribers, not only the original sender. Please observe good listserv etiquette! To respond only to the original sender or a subset of people, replace the listserv email address (RES_DEV@nordp.memberclicks.net) in the "To:" field with another address(es).

Accessing Archived Messages

All listserv messages since January 2017 are archived in digest format and can be accessed by Members logged into their individual NORDP Profiles. (Not available to trial subscribers)

Managing Your NORDP Messages

You can turn your subscription(s) on or off temporarily for each E-List or Email Delivery. Go to nordp.org and log in as a Member. From the drop down menu under My Features, select E-lists. For each listserv to which you subscribe, you can toggle to “Off” under “Subscribed” and/or “Email Delivery.” Simply toggle back “On” when you wish to resume receiving messages and/or subscribing.
