This free RIN event will look at the findings of the ‘E-journals: their use, value and impact’ report, which takes an in-depth look at how researchers in the UK use electronic journals, the value they bring to universities and research institutions and the contribution they make to research productivity, quality and outcomes.
It’s clear that e-journals have given researchers an unprecedented level and convenience of access to knowledge in scholarly articles, but what effect have they had on the ways in which researchers seek information? Do they provide good value for money to higher education libraries and what are the wider benefits for universities and research institutions? The event aims to spark a debate on these issues and to inform phase 2 of this RIN study.
Aimed at scholarly publishers, university librarians, higher education policy makers and researchers, this event will offer fresh insights on the use and value of e-journals and provide a networking opportunity for delegates from diverse arenas.
Key speakers include:
- Chris Banks, University Librarian, University of Aberdeen
- Richard Gedye, Research Manager at Oxford University Press
- Michael Jubb, Director of the RIN
- Dr Emily Lyons, Scientific Manager, Imperial College London
- Professor David Nicholas and Dr Ian Rowlands of the Centre for Information Behaviour and the Evaluation of Research (CIBER) at University College London
