  • Should you turn your thesis into a monograph?
  • How do you choose a publisher?
  • How do you get your proposal accepted?
  • What are the key stages in the publication process?
Fri 15

Have you ever wondered who can access your research? Most articles and research outputs are locked up behind paywalls inside an ivory tower. Find out how to make your practice more open to reach a broader audience, spark collaborations and, most importantly, improve the quality of your research.

Confused by copyright? You are not alone!

Copyright involves much more than checking how much you are photocopying, but it can be difficult to know where to start.

Join the Office of Scholarly Communication as we answer your copyright queries, looking at:

  • Who owns the copyright to my published articles?
  • How can I use Creative Commons Licenses to make my work available to all?
  • How can I safely reuse other's work?
  • What do my publishers and funders require of me?

You've published your research...now what should you do with it? It seems we are expected to share more and more online, which can be both daunting and exciting. In this session we will look carefully at the benefits and barriers to sharing research, giving you an opportunity to consider a strategy that will work for you.

This session explores the whys and hows of sharing research - the options, the benefits and the logistics:

  • Your aims and motivations for disseminating research
  • Opportunities for sharing offered by social media and traditional media
  • Pitfalls when creating an online presence
  • Ways to find out who has been sharing, using and citing your published research

Data Champions end-of-year event (by invitation only) [Places] 15:00 - 17:00 Todd-Hamied

Please join us on Tuesday 3rd December (3–5 pm) for a social event to celebrate the end of the Data Champion year!

This is an informal occasion to mark the end of 2019. There is no specific theme for the event; instead, we will explore a range of open topics via short talks and questions amidst general networking. Topics for talks and questions may be related, in the broadest sense, to Research Data Management and Open Research but do not need to cover these areas exclusively (lateral thoughts are welcomed!). In addition, Data Champions are encouraged to contribute their thoughts on the future structure of the programme and the content of forums in 2020 - all ideas will be gratefully received.

Event location: Todd Hamied Room, Department of Chemistry, Lensfield Road, CB2 1EW (https://map.cam.ac.uk/Department+of+Chemistry#52.198063,0.125855,17)
