Post-Publication Sharing: Publishing your Research Effectively for STEM PhD Students

Once you’ve published your research what should you do with it?

 

This session explores the whys and hows of sharing research:

  • scholarly best practice
  • opportunities offered by social media
  • benefits that sharing your research brings you and the wider community
  • what your funder expects you to share.

We’ll show you how to use the University repository, Apollo, to share your research and also access that of others, and explore ways to find out who has been sharing, using and citing your published research.

Research Data Management Workshop for GSLS PhD students

Have you ever had problems locating the latest version of a file, or come across obscure file names? Researchers receive, collect and need to manage a lot of information from different sources.

 

Additionally, some researchers will also work with research data. Research data takes many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

Managing digital information properly is a complex issue, but done correctly from the start, could save you a lot of time and hassle - when preparing a publication or writing up your thesis.

Wrangling Your Citations Like A Pro

Doing research involves reading a lot of other people's work and trying to figure out how it applies to what you're doing. But how do you manage all of this literature in a way that you can not only keep it organised, but also easily turn what you've read into a handy bibliography, or list of references?
In this session we will look at managing your citations with Zotero. We will explore how this tool allows you to keep on top of what you read online as well as how it can make referencing-induced headaches a thing of the past.

2nd Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Conference on the Mathematical Challenges of Big Data

Big data and data science are topics of the moment. Among the raft of conferences on these subjects few have a clear focus on the underpinning theoretical methodologies to maximise the information that can be extracted in the presence of inherent uncertainties, sampling bias, data streams, data linkage and all of the other specific features of so-called big data applications. This conference will showcase work by young and established researchers advancing the state-of-the-art on a rigorous mathematical basis.
