Hi John
Thnaks for adding the Int. Journal of Mixed Methods in Applied Business & Policy Research to the Journals listing on Methodspace under "Mixed Methods". Would you mind also listing it under "Research in Business & Management" please?

Hi John,

I'm interested in customising my ning site in a similar way to Methodspace. In particular I'd like to add a customised header and add a resources tab and change the label 'friends' to something more appropriate to my site. Just wondered if you might be happy to advise me?
Best wishes - Geraldine
