  25. 25. ‘Plagiarism is passing off, or attempting to pass off, another’s work as your own. It includes copying the words, ideas, images or research results of another without acknowledgement whether these words etc. are published or unpublished.’ UWTSD (2014, pp. 16-17)
  26. 26. Research Data Management • What is Research Data • Why is it important • Research Data at UWTSD “Like many other public funders of research…material that arises from the rsearch we fund should be made as widely accessible and reusable as possible. We are keen to make progress on the open data agenda as part of this. HEFCE (2015)
  27. 27. Research Data Management Policy Research Data Management Policy • www.uwtsd.ac.uk/...policies/Research-Data- Management-Policy-27.01.16.pdf
  28. 28. ‘White Orchid’ by Lyn Vincent is licenced under CC by ND 2.0 (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a nonproprietary alphanumeric code to uniquely identify scientific and other academic authors and contributors. White Orchid’ by Lyn Vincent is licenced under CC by ND 2.0
  29. 29. Why sign up for an ORCID? “There are approximately 200,000 people per unique surname in China. That’s a lot of “J Wang”s–more than 1200 in nanoscience alone! Same for lots of other names: we’re just not as uniquely named as we think.” Impactstory blog, ‘Ten things you need to know about ORCID’ http://blog.impactstory.org/ten-things-you-need-to-know-about-orcid-right-now/
  30. 30. ORCID https://orcid.org/register • Gives you a unique identity online • Increasingly adopted by funders and publishers • Link it up with your other online profiles • Moves with you wherever you go. • Takes 30 seconds to sign up for one! (and we can help you).

Students own the copyright to their thesis and the rights to publish and distribute it, unless they have made arrangements to transfer copyright to a third party (e.g. a sponsor).” Appendix 1 of the Code of Practice for Research Degrees 2015-16 Guidelines in relation to the format, word count and binding of the thesis
  36. 36. Am I allow to include copyright material in my thesis?
  37. 37. “when the thesis is added to the e-repository and / or made available in the library, it is considered ‘published’ by copyright law.

  39. 39. Reference Management
  40. 40. Managing your references • Keep track of the references you’ve gathered from different sources • Ensure that you have all the information you need to provide full and accurate references • Save time in locating reference details • Track down the original resource, if necessary
  41. 41. Write-N-Cite
  42. 42. • Open Access • Measuring impact
  43. 43. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9Jh_Gff RPU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5rVH1K GBCY
  44. 44. Why Open Access? • Enables the prompt and widespread dissemination of research findings • Benefits both the efficiency of the research process and economic growth driven by publicly funded research • Increases public understanding of research • Increased Citation
  45. 45. REF 2020 Requirements • To fulfil its aim of increasing substantially the proportion of research that is made available by open access (OA) in the UK, the four UK higher education funding bodies have introduced a requirement that outputs submitted to the post-2014 REF be made available in an open-access form from April 2016 • Open access refers to: • Unrestricted, online access to the published findings of research.
  46. 46. • When you’ve had a journal article or conference paper accepted for publication, you need to Act on Acceptance: • Deposit the accepted manuscript into the UWTSD Open Access Research Repository within 3 months of acceptance. • Without this the work will not be eligible for REF2020 • Policy in force now. • All other outputs (Type B) • A record of the output must also be deposited, • The text itself also deposited for preservation purposes What do I have to do?
  47. 47. Routes to Open Access Green Route Gold Route
  48. 48. Final peer-reviewed text • Accepted for publication • Author’s own Word of PDF copy May otherwise be known as • ‘accepted author manuscript’ • ‘final author version’ • ‘post-print’ • Green route is sometimes referred to as ‘self-archiving’
  49. 49. • Free of charge. • Cannot usually deposit publisher’s formatted version. • Embargo periods may apply. • ‘Closed deposits’ will be opened once embargo periods expire. • Most but not all journals are Green OA compliant. • You need to consider this in your choice of where to publish. • Exceptions can apply. • Exceptions must be referred to the Research Committee in advance if the journal you wish to publish in is not compliant.
  50. 50. Or, for research funded through any of the seven UK research councils: • RCUK will accept a delay of no more than 6 months between on‐line publication and the final Accepted Manuscript becoming Open Access. • In the case of papers in the arts, humanities and social sciences (which will mainly be funded by the AHRC and the ESRC), the maximum embargo period will be 12 months.
  51. 51. Licencing: Funded Research • Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence must be used for research published under the Gold route • Green Route, a CC BY licence should be sought as a matter of preference, although the open access requirement can also be met by use of the minimum of a Creative Commons Attribution- non-commercial licence (CC BY NC).
