Sharing your research data can be a great way of getting more citations, finding collaborators and making your work more reproducible, but how can you get the most benefit from doing this?

Come along to this session, part of our "March Munches" series, to find out how to avoid all the mistakes which will undermine your data sharing from inappropriate formats and the wrong location, to poor descriptions and incomprehensible spreadsheets.

Our guests from the Research Data team will present their data sharing horror stories so you can avoid having one of your own.

Arrive at 13:00 for a free sandwich lunch and the session will start at 13:15 and will end by 13:55.

Do you read copyright agreements before you sign them? Do you know who owns the rights to YOUR publications? Do you know what an open access licence is? What on earth are Creative Commons licences and how can they help you?

Come along to this session of our "March Munches" series and learn more about your rights as an author and how you can share your publications for free. You'll also learn what Creative Commons licences are and what rights these give you as an author and other people over your work.

Do you want to share your research and get more citations? If yes, then you should upload it to the University repository!

But did you know the University's Open Access and Open Data upload systems are changing (for the better)?

Come along to this session of our "March Munches" series to find out how to use the new system for uploading your research outputs to the University repository. We'll show you how to deposit your publications and data via Symplectic - the University's research information system. It is painless and easy! Promise!

In the last of our lunchtime "March Munches" sessions, we will introduce you to all things social media and how you can use some of the most popular platforms out there for your research.

From blogging to Twitter and YouTube to Instagram, we will help you decide which tools are right for you to not only share your own research but also find other people's work.

Arrive at 13:00 for a free sandwich lunch and the session will start at 13:15 and will end by 13:55.
