Welcome to an afternoon filled with information you didn’t know that you had to know as a PhD student. OA publishing, Open data, Altmetrics, reference managing tools, academic writing, what to think about the last minute before publishing your thesis, bibliometry lite, etc.
The primary target group for the afternoon is PhD-students at the science and technical faculties at LU.
Register before November 21st
Welcome and introduction to the afternoon
13.15-13.45 Open Access. An introduction to open access and the different ways you can provide free access to your publications. We will look at the requirements from research funding bodies and inform you about the support and help you can get from Lund university libraries. You'll also get some tips on how to select journals and how to avoid the less serious actors in the publishing field. Mikael Graffner, Lund University Library.
13.45-14.15 Open Data : focus on research data management – trends and future guidelines. Research data management involves both setting up data management plans in the beginning of research projects, as well as sharing research data and long-term preservation of research data. Monica Lassi and Maria Johnsson, Lund University Library will give a brief outlook on research data management as it looks internationally and nationally in Sweden.
14.15-14-45 Altmetrics - metrics and qualitative data that are complementary to traditional, citation-based metrics. They can include (but are not limited to) peer reviews on Faculty of 1000, citations on Wikipedia and in public policy documents, discussions on research blogs, mainstream media coverage, bookmarks on reference managers like Mendeley, and mentions on social networks such as Twitter”. PhD Johan Nilsson from the Dept. of Biology, LU and Oikos editorial office, will give a brief introduction.
Coffee and informal “drop-in” information points on OA, OD, Altmetrics, EndNote, Refworks, Last-minute agenda for thesis publication, Bibliometry lite, “Ask a librarian”, MOOC - Academic writing, The Academic Support Centre.
