It’s a new year for everyone. That means exciting things are coming for The Researcher’s Gateway in 2019. We have a lot more Research Blogs posts coming up, as well as several special features in the next few months. We will be launching some of our pre-made research bundles as well!
New Bi-Monthly Columns!
We are working on two regular columns for the next year, one will be a bi-monthly blog post on some of the most important Archaeological sites in the world, including ancient ruins, old castles, cathedrals, temples, mosques, grave-sites and more!
Monthly Special Features
Upcoming Special Features are a new thing for 2019 (although I guess you can count the Holiday Blogs as our Test Ground for Special Features. These will be every other month throughout the year and will include multiple posts per week on our area of focus for that month.
We’ve already set the first three for the year!
Black History Month – Women of Note (February)
We are extremely excited about our first month of a topic focus coming up. For Black History Month, we want to highlight some of the incredible women who have made great strides forward in Aviation, Medicine, the Arts, Politics, and more! Maya Angelou, Ilhan Omar, Katherine Johnson, Bessie Coleman, Octavia Butler and Althea Gibson are just a few that we will be focusing on. We have already learned so much by studying these incredible women for Black History Month. We know that you will find them all fascinating, inspiring and encouraging.
Epidemics, Plagues, and Diseases in History (April)
Given that all of us here at Researcher’s Gateway have done in depth study of diseases in our Academic careers, we’re fascinated by the historical epidemics, plagues, and famous diseases. We will be talking about several of the famous influenza epidemics, Bubonic Plague (The Black Death), Yellow Fever, Malaria, Cholera, Syphilis, and sweating sickness. The impact these had on society, both local and global is still felt today and something everyone, we feel, should understand.
Famous British Rulers (June)
Gathering information on famous British rulers is something that just seems to happen when we are researching. We have so much information, that we decided we needed to do something with it! So in June we’ll be bringing you several articles about both the famous, infamous and obscure British Rulers. I bet we’ll even feature a few that you’ve never heard of before. Well, unless you’re crazy researchers like we are.
So, 2019 promises already to be a year full of fun and entertaining research for us, and educational but interesting reading for you!
Thank you for joining us on the ride through history,
