Workshop summary

We all have to manage projects. Whether you are implementing a new system, migrating services, managing a vendor selection process, managing an office move or creating a new product or service, we are often managing projects without the support of a professionally trained project manager. We are expected to deliver more with less, and it mustn’t go wrong on our watch! If this sounds familiar, then help is at hand.

Peer review: much discussed, much covered, much maligned, but what do researchers really think of the system at the heart of scholarly research? Is it as broken as we are sometimes led to believe? How much of a discrepancy is there between expectation and reality? How do views differ between authors, editors and reviewers? Or across the disciplines – humanities, social sciences, science and medicine?

Electronic publishing has brought huge changes to learned information provision and to the role of librarians and other information professionals.  ‘Ownership’ of content is no longer a simple matter of receiving and storing print copies on a shelf.  Publishers and intermediaries license access to electronic resources, and so the licence has become a feature of most sales agreements.
