Refreshing research skills and raising research visibility

Gold open access; the green route;; Researchgate; Google Scholar profiles; h-index; impact factors… 

Are you a member of academic staff or research staff and these terms are a mystery to you? Or would you like to know more about how to make your research more visible? Or would you simply like to discover how to find information for your own research more effectively? If so, why not take some time out of the office or lab and come along to one of the Library workshops for Academic and Research Staff in March or July. They are all designed specifically for staff and research associates, with excellent feedback from attendees in previous years.

 “Really useful to understand impact of research”

“All great!”

“Practical session and useful advice.”

“Good pace and nice to try things straight after being introduced rather than all at end.  This was a very good session introducing a range of different resources.”

This year’s workshops are:

  • Finding research information;
  • Assessing your research impact with bibliometrics;
  • Increasing the visibility of your research;
  • Improving your research impact through open access.
