Welcome to the guide for Research Support. This Guide is aimed primarily at Research Staff and Research Students at the university, although some of the information may be relevant to anyone who is undertaking research or academic publishing at any point in their academic career. The tabs above will help you navigate this guide, taking you guidance on finding and managing information, publishing and authorship, evaluating research impact and open research.
University Library & Collections Research Support is provided by the Senior Manager: Library Research Services, the Open Access Team, the Research Data Management Officer and colleagues across the service.
The Planning your research pages highlight services within the Library and across the University which may be of use when at the stage of generating ideas for a research project, or preparing a funding application.
