Becoming an open researcher

In this self-directed module we focus on what it means to be an open researcher and begin to consider the skills and knowledge you need as you begin your research journey as well as those that you will need as you progress. The module introduces you to the importance of your researcher profile, guides you through creating a profile, discusses issues around open data, research data management, copyright literacy, Open Access publishing routes and research metrics tools, including their responsible use. This module is an entry level introduction to issues that can be explored in webinars and workshops offered by the Library Research Services teams. The module is hosted as a standalone course in Canvas, facilitated by the Library.
