Summer can be a quiet time for researcher development, particularly at the moment while campus remains closed. The RDP workshops are on hiatus until September, but we will be sharing any opportunities we come across for those of you who are still keen to learn!
The team from Clarivate are hosting free webinars throughout July and August to help researchers get to grips with Web of Science, a database that holds abstracts and indexes of articles from over 21,000 academic journals across all disciplines (not just the sciences!).
Sign up for a one-hour tour of the database and its associated tools, and learn some tips and tricks to help you navigate the world of research, find key articles and identify the experts in your field.
For more information on what the webinar will cover, and to register, choose one of the dates below – all sessions are the same, so pick the date that suits you best:

Web of Science is only one of the tools you can use to find relevant articles for your literature review and keep up to date with developments in your field. The Library subscribes to a range of abstract only and full text databases; take a look at the full A-Z of online resources, or use the Subject Guides to help focus your searching with some subject-specific databases.
The Library’s RDP workshops on topics including literature searching, keeping up to date in your subject and publication metrics will be starting again in the autumn. In the meantime, book a 1-2-1 with a research librarian to explore the best tools for your research, and work through some specific search examples to get you started.
