Publishing your own Open Access journalThe Library has developed an online publishing platform (Open Journals System) that enables researchers at Leicester to set up and run their own open access journals. This session offers an overview of the platform and what you need to consider before launching your own title.
Finding datasets for researchOne of the most common enquiries from researchers is “Where can I find data on my topic?” This session provides advice on how to find datasets for your research. We will cover a range of subject areas, and also look at the specialist resources to which the Library provides access.
Research Data Management: looking after and managing your research dataManaging the data you produce during your research activity is becoming increasingly important, for your own personal use, in order to meet funders’ data management requirements, and journals are increasingly requiring submission of data underpinning peer-reviewed publications. Whatever your area of research is, you will be dealing with data in one form or another and this session will explore how to organize and describe your data, data storage and security, and sharing and publishing your data.
