Open Research Day for UoB Staff and Postgrad Research Students

Published: Thu 12 Oct 2017

It is Open Access Week again 23-29 October. University of Bradford Staff and PGR Students are invited to our Open Research Day.

Open Research Day 24 Oct 2017

Our Open Research Day is an exciting opportunity to learn how to make your research more accessible. 

We have sessions on using social media in research; how to write for non-academic audiences (and why this is important); being involved in open/inclusive research; and the issues surrounding protecting your Intellectual Property whilst doing open research.

Everyone involved in research is welcome, including academic staff, early career researchers, post docs and PhD students – there will be something for everyone.
