In August 2014, the Action Research Network of the Americas (ARNA) and the Social Publishers Foundation (SPF) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding based on their shared interest in supporting practitioner and participatory research. The agreement calls for the two groups to operate as partners in several areas, including sponsorship of ARNA annual conferences, featured presentations at ARNA conferences, the awarding of a Travel Grant by the foundation to a practitioner-researcher whose work has been featured on the SPF website, and the sharing of links on the group’s respective websites.
