After a brain melt that resulted in these two useful Library workshops not appearing in this weeks’ email bulletin, I thought I’d better flag them up here.
Workshop 1. Assessing your research impact with bibliometrics
Research active staff are frequently being called upon to demonstrate the impact of their research whether for promotion, appraisal, funding applications, or research assessment.
One way of assessing the impact of your research is through citation analysis, or bibliometrics. To learn more about this key topic and assess your own impact, come along to a workshop specifically for Academic and Research Staff on Tuesday 27th March 2012, 10-12. Please sign up to attend via Staff Development.
Workshop 2. Improving your research impact via Open Access
Open access is an increasingly important phenomenon in scholarly communication and can provide considerable career benefits for individual researchers. To learn more come along to a session that will provide an overview of different open access publishing routes and find out how researchers can harness the benefits. This workshop specifically for Academic and Research Staff takes place on Thursday 29th March, 2-3.30. Please sign up to attend via Staff Development.
