How to join the Thesis Forum webinar on Tuesday


The next Thesis Forum - Passing the Probation Review will be streamed live as a webinar on Tuesday 17 November, 14:00 to 16:00 GMT. This will allow you to see and hear the speakers, and follow the questions. There will be a chat box that will be monitored by a member of staff. You can use the chat box to ask questions to the speakers.  


*WEBINAR INSTRUCTIONS*

The webinar will use Adobe Connect. You will not need any specific software, however, you will need speakers or a headset to hear the webinar, and you can participate in discussion by typed chat.

Adobe Connect works fine on Windows and Macs, and any browser. Use with a Linux computer may be possible, but is not recommended due to uncertain results.


For best results, follow these steps:

1)     Make sure any required equipment is physically plugged into your computer first, then launch your browser and go to:



2) Select Enter as Guest, type your name, and click Connect. It may take a minute or so for Adobe Connect to load up, and you will be in the meeting room.


3) Under 'Meeting' at the upper left, select Audio Setup Wizard. Go through the wizard, making sure everything works.

It is a good idea to try these steps in advance of the webinar. If you would like to access the webinar on an iPad download the Adobe Connect app from the online Apple store.

We look forward to seeing you there - online or in the room.

Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk



Library publishing services

The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences.  If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 
Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk
