Publishers, papers and peer review

Join us for a series of short talks and discussion around open access and changing pathways to publication. Speakers include representatives from academia, publishing, repositories and our support teams for open access, data and the REF. Topics include publication strategies, avoiding ‘predatory’ journals, the role of social science preprint platforms, managing data, the new culture of responsible research metrics in impact assessment, and OA policies. The aims are to help researchers maximize the accessibility and impact of their work while retaining ownership, engage with the move towards open practice, address some of the challenges of publication, be aware of University requirements, and know where to go for help.

This free event (which includes tea/coffee & sandwich lunch) is open to all University members, especially academics, researchers and research students from the Social Sciences Division.
