Research webinars this month on getting ready for REF and predatory publishing


Predatory lion

This month the Library Service will be running two lunchtime webinars, open to any Cranfield staff member or student interested in research.

They will consist of a short presentation, followed by discussion and your questions on the topic. There will also be time for you to ask us any burning research support-related questions you might have!

You will be able to access them both on and off campus, but you will need to book a place through the DATES system on the intranet.

​Thursday 21 March, 1-2pm: Predatory publishing – what is it and how can you avoid it?

Presenters: Mandy Smith (Information Specialist and Research Support Coordinator, Barrington Library) and Rachel Daniels (Education and Research Support Manager, Cranfield University Library Service)

Have you ever been approached to submit an article to a journal you are unsure of? Or submit your thesis to a publisher you have never heard of? Or even been invited to join an editorial board? Join us for a brief guide to predatory publishing, why you need to know, and how to avoid being caught out by it…

Book your place on the ‘Predatory publishing’ webinar

Monday 25 March, 1-2pm: Are you ready for REF?

Presenters: Andrew Kirchner (REF Delivery Manager, Research and Innovation Office) and Emma Turner (Information Specialist, Kings Norton Library)

Your opportunity to speak to our REF manager Andrew Kirchner about any aspect of REF2021.

Book your place on the ‘Are you ready for REF?’ webinar
