Welcome to The Vegan Society’s Researcher Network!

Launched in 2018, the Network is open to all independent or early-career researchers and postgraduate students who are conducting research into any of our three overarching research themes:

(1) Health & Wellbeing: health outcomes and benefits of vegan diets, mental health, nutrition.

(2) Society, Culture & Animal Ethics: non-human animal rights, political theory, speciesism.

(3) Environment & Sustainability: environmental costs of animal agriculture & animal product consumption, food security. 

Membership includes access to research and peer support via our Research Advisory Committee, supporting The Vegan Society’s research projects, and a platform to share your work and connect with fellow members. For a membership registration form just send an email to our Research Assistant, Alex, at [email protected]. Please note that members of the Researcher Network are not volunteers for The Vegan Society and do not speak on The Vegan Society's behalf.
