Xmas Holidays, Thesis Submission and January Elevenses

Xmas Holidays

This is our last blog post before the Xmas Holidays.

Remember that there will be no research librarians available during the University Closure days - from 12noon on Thursday 22nd December until we return on Tuesday 3rd January.

If you need to see a research librarian before Xmas then you will need to make a morning appointment with Selina by emailing librarians@le.ac.uk

The library building will still be open on some days over Xmas - check the opening hours.

Thesis Submission

If you wish to be included in the January graduation ceremony you must have submitted an eThesis and completed/signed Final Submission Form to the Library, along with a copy of your bound thesis or confirmation that your bound thesis will be delivered to us by Print Services in the New Year.

All theses submitted during the closed period will be confirmed with the Graduate School Office on 3rd January 2017 and will be eligible for the January ceremony.

For more information on submitting see the Graduate School Submission Guidelines

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



Digital collections Some researchers will be collecting materials as part of a project, and may want to publish them online. The Library supports two platforms to do this:

Publishing your own Open Access journal The 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 research One 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.
