Workshop One - Open Access

This session covers the practicalities and benefits of making your research available Open Access.  It includes:


  • How to find Open Access material, and assess it
  • Checking and understanding funder and publisher OA policies
  • A demonstration of research profiles and the repository of each institution


The session is delivered through a series of short exercises where participants are encouraged to be hands-on and share their thoughts. It ends with participants sketching a personal plan to make their research available open access, incorporating aspects of what they have learnt which work for them.

Workshop Two - Research Data Management

This session covers Research Data Management (RDM) as a pathway to sharing data.  Beginning with an introduction to RDM it allows participants to discuss concerns on sharing data. We focus on three areas:

  • legal and ethical (data protection, informed consent)
  • Intellectual Property and licencing (ownership, conditions for data use or re-use)
  • data documentation (providing context and meaning)

The session is delivered through short presentations and exercises encouraging reflection on the topic. Tools facilitating data sharing are introduced. It ends with a demonstration of a way to share and preserve research data through UK Data Service’s online data repository, ReShare.


Workshop Three -  Impact and Analytics

This session covers Impact and Analytics, and online tools available for research.

We will look at the following areas:

  • Established and emerging metrics 
  • Building an online profile for research 
  • Using social media for research

The session is delivered through short presentations and demonstrations where participants are encouraged to be hands-on and share their thoughts.
