ReCon 2017 rear


Last year, we ran with the theme of “Publishing for early career researchers: immortalisation, recognition and metrics “

ReConEvent (Research Conference) is now in its 5th year and we are looking forward to discussing publishing for early career researchers. In addition to writing and submitting papers and navigating peer review, there are other considerations for researchers with regard to publishing, including the use of metrics for evaluating research, access to publications, how to share and store data, government policy and careers for researchers. ReConEvent will host a range of speakers including academics, publishing professionals, information professionals and more.

Some comments from last year’s conference include:

“Very productive, should consider this as an essential training session.”

“The event expanded my knowledge regarding research impact strategies and techniques. The presentations were well-delivered and sufficiently detailed.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the entire day; the experience and knowledge of the different speakers was as interesting as it was useful. I am hopeful I will be able to attend next year.”

“Informative, friendly, engaging.” “Excellent!”

“A really good experience, would recommend!”
