    The use of restorative justice in education, criminal justice and other contexts has proliferated in a number of jurisdictions in recent years, if we take a dialogic definition of the term (Hoyle, 2010). At the same time, it has been possible to observe growing levels of communication and collaboration across borders, as well as between disciplines and professions, within the broader restorative field. While the benefits of these partnerships and relationships may be difficult to quantify, few would deny that they should be nurtured, if the ultimate aim is to maximise the benefits and minimise the risks of the use of restorative approaches to crime, harm and conflict. This text argues that communication and collaboration between those involved in restorative justice (RJ) in different settings and capacities should be further enhanced and structured. It outlines the activities of a new organisation, the Community of Restorative Researchers, simultaneously exploring the changing nature of communication and collaboration in the Internet age, and analysing the prospects, benefits and limitations of this and other attempts by restorativists to connect with one another. The Note finishes by briefly considering what it means, or should mean, to be a restorative researcher.
