Research Seminars at Leicester 2016/17


One of the best ways to find out about new research in your field is to attend a regular research seminar. Speakers present new work before it is published, and allow the audience to ask questions and discuss their findings. Seminars are also a great way to meet new people from inside and outside the university. 

There are many regular seminars at Leicester that PhD students can attend. You may already know about the one run by your department, but it is worth having a look at others, especially given the strong push for interdisciplinary research. Venturing outside your usual field can stimulate new ideas for your own research project. 

Below is a list of active seminars for 2016/17. If anyone would like to be included in this list, email me (wjbf1@le.ac.uk) and I will update.

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

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
