Moore Module: Avoiding Plagiarism new Self-taught Bookable

Most people know to avoid deliberate plagiarism but some examples are more subtle and harder to spot. The University takes research integrity and any breeches very seriously so it is important for staff and students at all stages of their career to learn how to avoid problems.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to think about what constitutes plagiarism, it's role in academic misconduct, and how it can be avoided.

Moore Module: Data Management new Self-taught Bookable

Data management is an important skill for any researcher to manage but it can be overwhelming to know where to start. This self-paced, interactive module guides learners through the different components of building a data managment strategy for their project including storage, sharing and organisation. The module also includes an activity to build a README file for data to prepare it for wider sharing.

Using and collecting data is part of all academic work from keeping track of sources to producing new knowledge at the end of a project. Whatever type of data you deal with it is important to keep good records so that you can track down what you need quickly and efficiently. Open research has added another element to this by advocating the sharing of the results of research to help further wider knowledge and many research funders now expect to see evidence of a solid strategy in the form of a data management plan.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to discover the different elements of a data management plan and guides them through the process of producing one for their own project.

Moore Module: Open Access new Self-taught Bookable

Although not the only aspect of open research, open access to research outputs is perhaps the one most people will be familiar with. This constantly changing landscape can be confusing but It doesn't have to be with our handy introduction to all things OA.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to think about the wider issues around open access to information, the benefits it can have for both researchers and the wider world and what researchers need to do to comply with funder mandates.

Moore Module: Presentations new Self-taught Bookable

The phrase 'giving a presentation' strikes fear into the hearts of many but being able to do so is a valuable skill within academia and beyond. This module will guide you through everything you need to know in order to design and deliver an effective presentation, no matter what your focus and skill level.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to consider what they are trying to achieve with their presentation and how to design a solution that fits this need. It cover essential areas such as how to design effective slides, choosing and dealing with technology and overcoming nerves.

Moore Module: Problem Publishers new Self-taught Bookable

Researchers are often told that they need to 'publish or perish' but now there is a new threat to worry about. Problem or predatory publishers exist to take advantage of confusion around open access publishing by aiming to trick authors into publishing or presenting their work for a fee but not offering editorial services. At best this is a wasted chance to publish elsewhere and at worst it could have a lasting impact on academic reputations.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to think about how these publishers operate, how to avoid them and some of the key considerations that should be taken into account around any offer to publish or present.

Moore Module: Referencing new Self-taught Bookable

Referencing is a vital part of academic life and building on the work of others but to many it can seem like an extra hassle. This self-paced, interactive module will guide learners through why referencing is so important, what exactly you need to credit and why and showcase various tools to make the process easier.

Moore Module: Responsible Metrics new Self-taught Bookable

The measurement of research has long focused on numerical assessment but things are changing. With the University of Cambridge signing DORA (San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment) it is important that researchers understand the issues surrounding the responsible use of metrics in their work.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to think about the issues around the limitations of relying on quantitative assessment and how they can make better use of a range of resources to showcase the impact of their work including putting together a responsible resume.
