Disambiguating Yourself : Online Identity Management for Researchers – A Quick User Guide

An excellent article written by a previous colleague of mine from the University of Strathclyde.

Whilst this refers to PURE as the CRIS (Current Research Information System), the principals are the same, if you are at the University of Northampton, think NECTAR where it mentions PURE…(NECTAR is our repository, we don’t have a CRIS).

Questions about Open Access and the next REF?

Had an article accepted for publication?  Busy writing up your article to submit to a journal?  Make sure that your article doesn’t become ineligible due to a simple administrative oversight.

In order to be eligible for submission in the next REF (Research Excellence Framework) all journal articles and conference proceedings that were accepted for publication from the 1st of April must be deposited in NECTAR as soon as they are accepted, and no later than three months from the date of acceptance.

Dawn Hibbert, Head of Research Support will take you through HEFCE’s (Higher Education Funding Council for England) Open Access Policy and 5 steps that have been designed to ensure that your research outputs meet HEFCE’s requirements.

It is important that all journal articles and conference proceedings (not just those to be submitted to the REF) meet these requirements, or it will count against the Universtiy in the next REF.

OA and the REF Webinar

 

Prof. Charles Oppenheim – Webinar – Research Ethics and Legal Issues

21st of February – 12 pm

Join us for the first in a series of webinars by Professor Charles Oppenheim, including time for questions, covering everything you ever wanted to know about research but were too afraid to ask.

The first webinar will be taking an in depth look into Research Ethics and the legal issues that surround this.

Whether you are almost ready to publish your results, beginning to think about a research project, have thought about doing research, or are currently researching then this webinar is for you.

Ethical integrity is increasingly required and expected by all who engage in research and this has implications into the way our research is conducted.

Impact – REF

The Research Excellence Framework was the first exercise to assess the impact of research outside of academia. Impact was defined as ‘an effect on, change or benefit to the economy, society, culture, public policy or services, health, the environment or quality of life, beyond academia’. HEFCE

Measuring the impact that our research has on society and cultures, and being able to demonstrate this impact, has implications for future funding.

Fast track have studied the most succesful case studies from the previous REF, and published their findings in an article entitled:  10 lessons from grant proposals that led to the most significant and far-reaching impacts.

Very much worth a read for those who are looking to submit to the next REF.

Funded by RCUK? 2017 Submission period now open
