Description:
There is no doubt that the world of research is continuously (and sometimes unexpectedly)changing. It is important to maintain a heightened awareness of these various influences, as they are likely to affect your access to funding, sponsorship, students, good team members, projects and career opportunities. So make sure that these influences are on your radar and keep them in mind as you work through the other courses in this programme, as they will inform your reflections, decisions and plans for the future.

As a research leader you may also have added responsibility to make sure that your team members and mentees are aware of and prepared to deal with these influences; and the opportunity to inform national and international policies and priorities and perhaps contribute to the formative stages of developing calls for input.

This masterclass will cover TCD's strategic plan; the national HEI sector; national policies etc.

Niamh Brennan, Library

2 hours

online masterclass

Description:
This masterclass will discuss a) Trinity's Research Support System (RSS) and b) open access publishing, including TCD's open access policy and Trinity's open access repository (TARA).

Trinity's RSS system allows TCD researchers and postgraduate research students to input and update information on their research, current interests and publications, and provides a database of the University's expertise for external bodies/collaborators to search.
Open access means the free, immediate, availability on the public Internet of works which scholars give to the world without expectation of payment – permitting any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full text of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software or use them for any other lawful purpose. Open access material is more likely to be found, read and cited than work solely published in traditional journals. This visibility can also help to attract prospective collaborators and research students.
