Fri 20
Managing Your Data (Department of Engineering - Division E RDC) Not bookable 14:00 - 15:00 Institute for Manufacturing, Seminar Room 1

There is an increased emphasis on managing and sharing data produced in research. Many of the research funders supporting work at the University of Cambridge require that research data are openly available with as few restrictions as possible.

Research data management is a complex issue, but done correctly from the start, could save you a lot of time and hassle at the end of the project; when preparing your data for a publication or writing up your thesis. Research data takes many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

This session aims to help you get started with managing your data by introducing you to key principles around organising, storing, archiving and sharing your data. You will also learn how to create your own Data Management Plan.

Fri 27
Publishing in Journals (Department of Engineering - Division B RDC) Not bookable 14:00 - 15:00 Department of Engineering, Cambridge Graphene Centre Seminar Room

Publishing is a key part of any academic career: it is the main way researchers share their research findings with colleagues and the world at large, so that knowledge develops over time and helps to change policy and practice.

Through publishing, you will receive feedback on your work and develop your ideas further. In addition, a strong publication record is also important in developing your reputation and career.

In this session we will introduce how to choose a journal, give an overview of peer review and explore Open Access publishing options.

Mon 30
Designing Conference Posters (Department of Engineering - Division C RDC) Not bookable 16:00 - 17:00 Department of Engineering, Room to be confirmed

Conference posters are a simple, visual, and effective way of sharing your research. They may be presented at academic or professional conferences, Departmental events, or educational events for the general public. A well-designed poster allows you to communicate information about your work in a concise and appealing manner, and engage with colleagues, peers and others in a conversational setting.

Creating a conference poster is a balancing act between including enough detail to effectively describe your work, and keeping it visually attractive and minimal enough that people can understand at least the main points at a glance.

This module will help you create effective conference posters and introduce key design principles.

Research ethics and research integrity are serious issues. All researchers should consider the ethical context of the research being carried out and be able to justify decisions to the wider academic community.

This module aims to help you get think about the ethical considerations of your research by introducing you to the Department of Engineering ethical review process and investigating some case study scenarios.
