      Guidelines for publishing research papers ethically Ravi Murugesan Recorded: Feb 20 2014 6:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • It’s a time of major change in scholarly publishing. Some changes are exciting (such as open access, open science, and open data) and they promise to open up science in a revolutionary way. And some are concerning, such as increasing incidents of malpractice in research. Even researchers with solid background and those working at top universities have been found guilty of indulging in malpractice. One of the root causes of this is a lack of awareness of publication ethics. In this webinar, we will provide guidelines on publishing ethically so that you are better prepared to conduct and present your research.

    • Building a professional identity - From research to impact
      Building a professional identity - From research to impact Prof. Carol Tenopir, University of Tennessee; Manon Burger, Elsevier Journals; Wouter Haak, VP Product Strategy, Elsevier Recorded: Apr 16 2015 3:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:

      What is your relationship with research?

      Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.

      Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.

    • Pharma and the E-Patient: Discovering, Learning, Helping
      Pharma and the E-Patient: Discovering, Learning, Helping Andrew Spong, Editorial Director, Nexus Recorded: Nov 24 2010 1:00 pm UTC 35 mins
    • A revolution is taking place within healthcare that will affect its design, deployment and delivery. This revolution's agitators are those who have most to gain, and most to lose, from the changes that are being affected: patients. As the physician-patient relationship evolves, the nature of the expectations empowered patients bring to their interactions with pharmaceutical industry presences is also transforming. Through its presentation of a series of contextual observations and a concluding series of expert view summaries, this webcast assesses the impact that participatory medicine is having upon the pharmaceutial industry's representation and reception within the social web, and asks how the industry may prepare itself to discover, learn, and help in new digital environments.

      Andrew Spong, PhD worked for a decade in academia and a further 11 years in scholarly publishing before turning his attention to the health conversation on the social web. An industry thought leader, Andrew publishes regular comment and analysis at STweM.com, and is the co-founder of influential European Twitter-based community Healthcare Social Media Europe (#hcsmeu). Andrew assumed the position of Editorial Director, Nexus, part of the PSL group, in June 2010.
