Library Research Week is an annual event that seeks to empower researchers on many aspects of the research process including proposal writing, literature reviews, research methods, academic writing skills, scoping reviews, research data management, publishing and many more. The theme for LRW2024 is Let’s Achieve Research Excellence and the programme is almost ready. We will host workshops and discussions on research best practices throughout the week, including those dedicated to effectively utilising the new DMP tool.

On Tuesday, 14 May, there will be webinars on academic writing skills and proposal writing, and an introductory workshops on quantitative and qualitative research. On Wednesday, 15 May, you can attend a workshop on how to use the newly implemented FAIRwizard, an introduction to mixed-methods research, an advanced workshop on how to optimally use EndNote and how to conduct scoping reviews. On Thursday, 16 May, you will be introduced to Microsoft PowerBi and SPSS and there will also be a webinar on how to “tell a story with your data.” The programme for Friday, 17 May, which will be in-person only, will start with a panel discussion on the progress and impact of our transformational agreements with publishers. This will be followed by a presentation by Prof. Karen Esler on how green spaces influence our well-being. Those who attend the Friday programme, will be invited to enjoy lunch afterwards.

The full programme and links to register will be made available soon, so keep your eyes peeled for the announcement. We are looking forward to helping you on your journey to achieve research excellence!
