Research Support Programme - Session Information


Overview of Library services

The University Library supports HDR students and early career researchers in a number of ways. This introductory session will provide an overview, and suggest how you might benefit from library support at different stages in your research process.

Literature searching 

Scholarly literature searching is much more than a few keywords! Find out how to carry out thorough, efficient and effective searches using UWA tools and scholarly information resources provided by the University Library. 

Advanced Google for researchers

Harness the power of Google to find scholarly materials to support your research, find out how advanced Google functions can enhance the quality and efficiency of your searches.

Staying up to date

Setting yourself up to keep abreast of new publications, news and developments in your field can save you hours of time through your research project. This workshop will cover technologies, tools and tips to simplify this aspect of your life.

Research Data Management

All researchers have an obligation to manage their research data and ensure compliance with UWA and funder policies. This workshop will provide an overview of best practice relating to data storage, IP, metadata, documentation, sharing, disposal and more.

Maximising and Measuring your Research Impact

Understanding the impact of your research is essential to your future success. This workshop will cover citations and other evidence of impact, the h-index, journal rankings and impact factors, researcher profiles, and focus on strategies to maximise impact. This session will be useful for researchers completing the Research Performance Evidence section of grant applications and anyone needing to demonstrate their research impact.

Where to Publish

Deciding where and how to publish is an important step in the research process. This workshop will cover a range of factors to consider, and introduce the tools and guides that can help. Open access publishing and the UWA Research Repository are covered.

Research Support Programme - Overview

The University Library offers a regular programme of research support workshops aimed at higher degree research students and early career researchers.

This programme has been developed in response to feedback from UWA researchers about common challenges in the research lifecycle, and provides information about tools and services provided by the University Library to support research activities.

All workshops will be delivered by experienced librarians, will be ‘hands-on’ and include time to ask questions.
