Open Access Week: 20 to 26 October 2014

The Library has planned a series of events to celebrate Open Access Week 2014: 

HEFCE Policy for Open Access and the Next REF

Thursday 23 October 2014
11.00 am to 12.00 pm
Auditorium, McClay Library

During this session we aim to demonstrate what you need to do in order to comply with the HEFCE Open Access Policy and to ensure that your work is eligible for the next REF. Information on how to comply with the RCUK and Wellcome Trust Open Access policies will also be discussed. There will be time at the end of the session for questions and one-to-one demos so please bring along the accepted manuscript (post-print) version of your research papers if you need any help or advice about depositing your work in Pure.

To book a place, log into Queens Online then select ‘Training Courses’ from the ‘Other’ section on the left of the screen.

Research Portal Prize Draw for Staff

If you deposit the accepted manuscript (post-print) version of one of your research papers in Pure during Open Access Week, you will have the chance of winning a £50 Amazon voucher! The winner will be chosen at random so the more full text deposits you make, the more chances you have to win!

Open Access Training Course

Friday 24 October 2014

Module Reading Lists

The Library is currently gathering information on books recommended in module readings lists. All readings lists will be checked for book availability whenever received by the Library. Please note, however, that for lists to be checked for availability and new book orders made in time for the start of the semester, lists will need to be received by Friday 12th September.

We would encourage staff who have not already done so, to send module reading lists as soon as possible to their subject librarian.
