Using the TPRN website

Making the most of the Triple P Research Network

Here's some ways you can get the most out of the TPRN website.

You can enhance your research profile within the network by becoming a featured researcher. To do this, you first need to (a) complete some "about me" information, and (b) upload a profile photo of yourself. This can be achieved through your Edit Profile screen.

Note: you will also need to turn your Featured Researcher option to 'on', as shown in the screenshots below.

The TPRN forums are a great way to share information and resources with colleagues. You can also send a direct message to another member of the network through this page — useful if you want to get in touch with someone and don’t have their email address.

When you visit the forums page, you will see a listing of all available forum categories within which you can create or reply to forum posts.

Use the tabs under the main heading to navigate the Forums and Messaging pages.

Your Name: Clicking the tab under the main heading that displays your name will take you to your forum profile screen. Here you will see a summary of your recent forum activity, and you can also manage your notification settings regarding new forum posts and direct messages sent to your account. See "Manage your notifications" below for more information about this.

The trial register is useful for keeping track of all currently active or recently completed Triple P research. By adding your trial to the register, your can keep other Triple P researchers informed about where your research is up to.

There are a number of helpful resources under the Resources and Funding pages of the TPRN site. These range from downloadable syntax files for data analysis, policy papers, and information about funding opportunities, through to sample materials to give you a head start. More resources will be added over time, so check back often. If you think of something we’ve missed or have something you'd like to share, please email suggestions or resources to info@tprn.net.

You can also choose whether to make your email address visible to other members, and change the email address used for notifications. This is useful if you registered for the TPRN with one email address, but would like to receive notifications at a different address.

Email newsletter subscription

When you register for the TPRN you will be automatically subscribed to the email newsletter so we can keep you updated on the latest news and interesting events. You can opt out of these emails if you wish through the edit profile page.

Simply change your subscription status to 'unsubscribed' and then save. Note that you will still receive important account-related emails.
