REPAR abides by the Fonds de recherche santé Québec’s (FRQS) definition of an independent researcher predominantly working in the field of rehabilitation. Membership applications of full and emerging researchers are reviewed by the Scientific Council (SC) for possible recommendation to the Board of Directors. The collaborator and student applications are reviewed by the Coordination Board and the partner applications are approved by the Board of Directors.
In order to maintain their membership in the network, full and emerging researchers must:
Collaborating and student members must:
Regardless of their status, members who perform research activities commit to:
The absence of any scientific activity or participation in normal network activities (contribution to a strategic group, attendance at a general assembly, etc.) for a period of two (2) years may result in loss of membership in REPAR.
Holders of a doctoral (or equivalent) degree who are professors or researchers associated with a university or college, or who are full researchers in a health and social services institution in the province of Quebec are eligible to become full researchers.
The status of full researcher is also open to PhDs who are researchers in a Quebec university or health and social services institution leading to a professorship in a Quebec University.
A holder of a doctoral degree, occupying a university position in Quebec or in a Quebec research center, who has been granted research funds or who has published works, is eligible to become an emerging researcher. This status is valid for two years. After this period, emerging researchers are required to apply for a change of status in order to become a full researcher, an associate researcher or a clinician of the REPAR.
A researcher may become an emerging member by applying in writing to REPAR’s Scientific Director, outlining his/her interest in rehabilitation research in a cover letter and submitting his/her curriculum vitae for review. Membership applications are reviewed by the Scientific Council for possible recommendation to the Board of Directors.
Any person who actively participates in the development of research or knowledge transfer with a full or emerging REPAR researcher qualifies as a collaborator. An application must be supported by the research member.
A collaborator may be:
Students (Master’s degree, doctoral students or postdoctoral trainees) enrolled in a program directed by a REPAR researcher are eligible to become student members of the network. Students must hold REPAR student status and be in good standing to be eligible for the network’s grant program. Students must register at the beginning of each year and specify the researcher who is mentoring them. The application must be supported by the research member directing the student’s work.
Any person, whether representing an organization or not, interested in the network’s activities (e.g. monitoring, rehabilitation, knowledge transfer) who does not actively participate in a research member’s project. The application must be supported by the REPAR director.
