Early career researchers are being reminded to take advantage of two opportunities coming up to support for their publications and career development.
Open Access: Information session
The Library and Research Support Services currently have funding available to help researchers pay the Article Processing Charges (APCs) associated with Gold Open Access (OA) for any journal articles accepted for publication by the end of March 2013. This funding is available on a first-come-first-served basis.
All ECRs are invited to a presentation and Q&A on Tuesday 29 January 2013 to help you understand the funding and how it may be used, led by the Library’s Open Access Officers, Helen Albrow and Dr Cheryl Rounsaville. If you can’t make it to the session between 1-2pm, then Helen and Cheryl will hold a drop-in session from 2-3pm to answer your questions on a one-to-one basis. All ECRs are welcome, tea and coffee will be provided.
Any queries about this event can be directed to Dr Charlotte Mathieson or Dr Hannah Grainger Clemson, Institute of Advanced Study, at lib dot network at warwick dot ac dot uk
