20-21 June – Town Hall, Creative Hub, Waterside Campus
Our beautiful riverside setting provides the backdrop for this year’s Annual Research Conference. With over 100 abstracts received from Postgraduate Researchers and staff for research papers, posters, 3MT presentations and Bake your Research, this year promises to reflect the very best research that University of Northampton has to offer.
We are also lucky to be joined by three distinctive and vibrant keynote speakers. Professor Deborah Johnston from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) who considers Researching Nutrition and Decision-Making: Negotiating Ethical and Analytical Challenges as she opens the conference on the Thursday.
We have a Performative Plenary Provocation by Dr Kieran Fenby-Hulse at the end of the first day entitled ‘Difference and the Academy’.
While on the second day, Julia Reeve, Coordinator of East Midlands Writing Pad and Research ELT Officer from De Montfort University, invites us to think about the relationship between creativity and research.
At whatever stage you are in your research career, there really is something for everyone at this year’s conference. We launch our full conference brochure very soon, but for now, please do register your interest on Gateway for Day One, and Day Two. Everyone is welcome to attend the conference meal at the end of Day One, but please do sign up on Gateway for this too.
Join us for a fabulous showcase of our university’s finest research. For further information on the event, please contact Dr Melanie Petch.

A number of academics within Universities accross the United Kingdom have this week received emails with the subject heading of “I found your work on Wikipedia but it could be more accessible” from a wikimedia association member. These emails are requesting articles, that have been referenced in Wikipedia, but which currently do not have the full text available. Whilst making our research as widely avaialble as possible, the means through which they are requesting that you do this may lead you to be in breach of copyright.
Therefore, if you do have the article’s accepted manuscript that is being requested, and it’s not already uploaded to NECTAR (and it was created whilst you were an employee of the University of Northampton), then please do upload it to NECTAR and we will make it avaiable if we are able after checking publisher’s policies. If the research output was the result of research done at another institution, we will be able to upload this to our CRIS (Current Research Information System) when we get it (hopefully in the new year!)
If you use Research Gate – Please ensure that you have uploaded the accepted manuscript to NECTAR… STM (International Association of Scientific Technical and Medical Publishers) are taking on Research Gate with regards to copyright infringment…
By all means use Research Gate – but rather than uploading the full text, please provide a link to your article that’s in NECTAR.
What is made public through NECTAR has had the copyright checked by professional staff, and the University is also covered by a takedown notice. We cannot cover you for your use of Research Gate.
