Events and training

The Open Research and Rights team offers a varied selection of training for staff, doctoral researchers and students within our community. Our training focuses mainly on open research or open science policies, practice and tools, and is delivered in a range of ways. See below for a list of some of the training areas we routinely cover. 

We work with colleagues in Library Services, Graduate School and academic Colleges to provide training via centralised workshops, staff or researcher development programmes, and in some instances, work with colleagues to embed training within teaching programmes or departmental events.  

We are keen to engage with academic and professional departments to ensure researchers and support teams are well-informed on open research topics, including open access publishing and archiving, research data management, REF and funder open research policy. We are happy to provide training and briefings on request to academic and professional departments, research teams, small groups and 1-1 as we know that researchers and research support staff often require specialist support tailored to their needs. 

To book our services, or if you would like to discuss developing a bespoke session or training, please contact us by using the request booking form.

Alternatively, if you prefer to discuss your needs with one of our specialists, do get in touch with the most appropriate member of the team. See Contact us for details.

  • Publishing your research open access in line with REF and funder requirements

  • Managing your research profile using BRAD and researcher identifiers (e.g. ORCiD, Scopus ID, Researcher ID)
