The Library offers services for researchers on six different topics: Research Data Management, Responsible Conduct of Research, Research Analysis (bibliometrics), Systematic Literature Searches and Reviews, Plagiarism, and Pure Services. This presentation gives an overview of these topics and how researchers can benefit from the services provided by the Library.
The following topics are covered:
Over the last couple of years, The University Library of Southern Denmark has established a service to screen all PhD-theses for plagiarism. Through that work we have gained considerable insight into plagiarism. Therefore, we offer a presentation on the following topic:
- Plagiarism detection and tips on how to avoid plagiarism
The talks can be focused on screening for plagiarism in PhD theses or be more general. If you are interested, please inform your contact librarian or send an email to Lasse Østengaard.
All research must be registered in Pure. But Pure is more than just a database containing references to publications. Much can be done to pimp your Pure profile. Presentations may cover the following topics:
- Open Access – introduction and how to fulfil the demand for Open Access to publications
- Improve your Pure profile – how you can clean the data and improve your Fingerprint on your Pure profile at sdu.dk
- Teaching portfolio – introduction to registration of Teaching in Pure (Can be made into a workshop with SDUUP)
- CV – how to create a CV in Pure based on your other registrations
If you are interested, please inform your contact librarian or send an email to Pure support.
Researchers are increasingly judged on the quantifiable output of their research, such as the number of publications, or citations, the impact factor of the journals you publish in, or your h-index. The Library can help to gain insight on how the rest of the world sees your research and give you the tools to use your metrics to your own benefit. We offer talks on this topic under the following headlines:
- Research Analysis Support – What can we do for you? (short)
- Your Research Footprint – How to improve your WoS, Scopus and Scholar profiles
- Social Media meets Science – How to boost your impact
- Using SciVal – How does your research compare to the world?
If you are interested, please inform your contact librarian or send an email to Research Analysis support.
Research Data Management
RDM is becoming increasingly important, and more and more funders demand the submission of RDM plans. The Library offers talks on this topic under the following headlines:
- Data Management Planning – the way to improved research output and more
- FAIR research data – what is it, and how to make data FAIR?
- RDM Support – what can we do for you? (short)
- Open Science Policy at SDU – what does it mean for you?
If you are interested, please inform your contact librarian or send an email to RDM Support.
Responsible Conduct of Research
In the wake of the Penkowa scandal it has been decided that all PhD students must complete a course on responsible conduct of research. Unfortunately, we have found that not all researchers and PhD supervisors are familiar with the rules. The Library offers talks on this topic under the following headlines:
- Authorships – Guidelines and norms for authorships, how to prevent authorship conflicts
- Responsible conduct of research – What is it all about? Which common guidelines are there, and what do they say?
- Responsible Conduct of Research PhD course – What are PhD students at SDU taught in the mandatory RCR course?
- Predatory Journals – What are predatory journals? Is engaging with predatory journals ever a good idea?
- Social media – Where to be present? And how?
If you are interested, please inform your contact librarian or send an email to Lone Bredahl Jensen.
Systematic Literature Searches and Reviews
A systematic literature search aims at collecting the evidence and is therefore a necessary and essential part of a systematic review. Systematic reviews aim at answering specific research questions, by collating all the evidence that fits predefined criteria. We offer a presentation on the following topic:
- Systematic literature searches – an overview of the standards of systematic literature searches and what the library can contribute (including reference management software programs, such as Endnote and Covidence)
If you are interested, please inform your contact librarian or send an email to Mette Brandt Eriksen.
