Calling all PGRs…Did you know about these useful online resources!

new systemAs a researcher you often use both offline and online resources to find out stuff related to your research project. So, we would like to remind you that there are plenty of online materials available to all UoN researchers, particularly important for those of you who are offsite.  This includes:

  • NILE RES001: here you will find our Epigeum online workshops in research methods, literature review, as well as research integrity and ethics. For full details, please see the Online Skills Development handout. You can also find links to online workshops on Gateway – choose Online Courses in the left hand menu. In NILE RES001 you can also find slides and materials from Graduate School generic workshops.
  •  Lynda: is an online library of training resources and we have a subscription for our research students. Lynda contains workshops on information literacy, writing research papers and grant writing, as well as ‘soft skills’ workshops in presentation skills, time management and managing projects. You can find Lynda here. For full details and instructions on how to log in, please see the Getting Started with Lynda document.
  •  SAGE Research Methods:  supports research at all levels by providing material to guide users through every step of the research process. It contains more than 1000 books, reference works, journal articles, and instructional videos by world-leading academics from across the social sciences, including the largest collection of qualitative methods books available online. Sage can be accessed here.
  •  Webinars from Wiley: here you will find a variety of support on writing papers and guidance to submission etc, click the link to see the content. Please note this content is from the publisher, Wiley so submission guidelines and advice may be specific to this publisher, though general advice may be useful.
  • Free online impact training for researchers: This course will help you fast track the impact of your research, no matter what career stage or discipline you are in. It will inspire and equip you with the skills and confidence you need to make a step change in the impact of your research.

If you know of any other good online resources that you think other PGRs would benefit from then do let us know and we’ll circulate the information.
