We can help by:

  • providing advice on citation analysis and bibliometrics
  • developing guidance for research data management
  • supporting the REF and related exercises
  • working with others to provide workshops on literature searching, open access, copyright and the networked researcher
  • working to enhance our existing library, archive and IT services for research


We anticipate developing and delivering a full range of research support services over the coming year. Please contact us with your ideas about how we can help.
