Eventbrite - Scholarly communication in the 21st century – a survival guide for researchers

Speakers include:

  • Professor Andrew Prescott (Digital Humanities, University of Glasgow and AHRC Theme Leader Fellow, Digital Transformations)
  • Dr Danny Kingsley (Office of Scholarly Communication, University of Cambridge)
  • David Winters (Literary critic and online journalist)
  • Barney Brown (Digital Communications Manager, University of Cambridge)

We’re delighted to announce the next SMKE event in Cambridge which is organised with the support of the Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership.

Our end of year event is aimed at PhD students and early-career researchers in the Arts and Humanities who are looking for practical guidance on how to navigate a landscape of scholarly communication which has been profoundly altered by digital technologies and social media. We’ll be covering a diverse range of topics, tackling issues throughout the scholarly communication lifecycle – from the first stirrings of an idea to publicising your finished work. Sessions will cover the following themes:

  • Open Access publishing: what research funders require and what it means for you
  • Understanding copyright in the digital age
  • Making your voice heard online: tools and tactics
