Our platform for research at Cardiff Met - figshare

We've launched a new platform for research at Cardiff Met - you can find out much more on our figshare page.

Research(er) Elements

We're delighted to launch a new batch of training for research and researchers at Cardiff Met. These may be of interest to any student but are particularly aimed at postgraduate research students and anyone involved in doing research and allied work.

All our workshops sessions will take approx 45mins > 1 hour and will take place via Teams - there will be a bit of participation and plenty of chances for discussion and questions. 

Take a look at what we are offering.

Open Access Publishing Agreements

Library Services is always looking for more ways to support research at Cardiff Met and we are delighted to announce some new routes for open access publishing. This complements our existing support for open access and builds on our ambition to play our part in helping to share the work going on at the University.  

As authors and researchers may know, open access (OA) publishing in journals can be expensive via what publishers call Article publishing charges (APCs for short). To help with these costs we have been working with Jisc and the wider sector on what are called transitional agreements. 

You can find out more about the agreements on our Open Access Publishing Agreements page.
