Researcher Development Programme


"I can manage information effectively and have general ICT skills."

As researchers, we work with information every day. It is crucial that you manage your literature, data and references properly, not only to comply with regulations but also so that you can conduct your research effectively.

You must also have developed general ICT skills, such as the ability to produce a variety of document types, create a professional presentation, or manage your emails. These may sound elementary, but many people are not as well-versed in these skills as they could be.

You can develop these skills through courses run by the University Library, the Research Data Management Centre, and the University Information Services. Please see the sections of the RD Hub related to this area for more detail: in particular 'Data and Reference Management', 'Other Software and ICT Skills', and 'Software for Writing and Graphics'.
