Service Update

Last week, the publications team were involved in delivering a range of sessions on Open Access for different Schools as part of Research Week. The sessions gave researchers a chance to refresh their knowledge of Open Access and to ask any questions they had. Feedback from the sessions was very positive and people seemed to find them helpful. If anyone would like to arrange an in-person session for their particular group, please just get in touch.
