Individual Membership 2017/18 - National Retail Research Knowledge Exchange Centre (NRRKEC)




The NRRKEC is based in Nottingham Business School (Nottingham Trent University). The Centre identifies and collate information about academic retail related research carried out across UK HEIs for retailers. For academics, the NRRKEC facilitates access to research contacts and agendas within UK retailers, supporting Universities striving to enhance the ‘impact’ of their research as well as retailers who are seeking impactful research.


Detailed Description

Twelve months individual membership of NRRKEC, and which is available from September 2017, provides the following benefits:

  • Access to the NRRKEC UK ‘retail academic research directory’ which captures relevant retail academic research from UK Universities in a digestible format.
    • The NRRKEC Directory provides users with a searchable database, by research type, retail topic, research institution or key words, with a link to the full abstract of each piece of research, as well as the NRRKEC summary of the retail ‘takeouts’ from the research.
    • Please note that because most, but not all, academic journal publishers charge individuals without institutional subscriptions for access to the full text of research papers, these are not available directly through the directory.
    • However, if a NRRKEC member specifically needs to see the complete text of a research paper included in the Directory, then the NRRKEC team, who have already contacted one or more of the academics involved in the research, will then liaise with the author(s) involved on your behalf and so look to obtain the full document. Please just complete the request form included in the Directory.
  • One delegate place at the 3rd Annual NRRKEC Retail Symposium - the theme, date and venue for the 2018 Symposium will be confirmed to members by the end of 2017.
  • The opportunity to showcase your retail-related research events and news on the NRRKEC website.
