An introduction to Open Research (for PhD students in Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences)

Thu 17 Jan 2019

Description
  • Would you like to share your research findings with the international academic community, without paywall restrictions?
  • Would you like to boost citations of your work?
  • Did you know that funders recognise the benefits of Open Access and most now require it as a condition of their grants?

These are questions for postgraduate students at all stages of their research.

Research in the 21st century is changing at a rapid pace and it can be hard to keep up with this dynamic and fast-paced environment. There are more pressures on researchers than ever before including mandates around Open Access and data sharing as well as extra pressure to boost citations to secure the next role.

This Introduction to Open Research will help you navigate this complex minefield including the benefits of Open Access, how to use the University’s repository to publish research and boost your citations and how to comply with the new regulations.

Target audience
  • PhD students in HASS subjects.
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available
