Who's talking about your research online
A new way to track who's talking about your research
Researchers are increasingly required to demonstrate the impact that their research is having beyond traditional academia. The emerging area of altmetrics offers new and powerful ways to track and report on the online attention of research.
This session will provide an overview of the tools and support that the Library provides to University of Manchester researchers in this new area of scholarly communications.
During this session we will consider the following:
How are altmetrics being used by publishers, funders and research institutions?
How can I find out my own altmetric data?
How can I benefit from altmetric data?
Research Data Management in Science and Engineering
Have you ever had problems finding the latest version of a file, or discovered a file name you did not understand?
Researchers receive, collect and manage research data in many forms, ranging from measurements and models to videos and simulations. Managing your data can be complex, but a little planning at the beginning can help you save time, increase your impact and work more effectively.
This workshop will cover:
Effective strategies for backing up your computer and organising your files
Methods for working collaboratively on your data
Funder requirements for making your data available, including the EPSRC.
Writing a data management plan
You are encouraged to bring an electronic device to this session.
