This October the Researcher Education and Development team have organised a number of online workshops to assist with your research skills, ranging from data wrangling to publishing your research. Each workshop is delivered by our Library specialists.

11 October, 10 am – 12 noon

Advanced Data Wrangling with OpenRefine

Building on the introductory session, learn advanced data wrangling skills including combining tabular datasets, geolocating data and “what if” exploration using OpenRefine.

13 October, 10 am – 12 noon

Data Organisation in Spreadsheets for Researchers

Good data organisation is the foundation of any research project. Most researchers have data in spreadsheets, so it’s the place that many research projects start. To use tools that make computation more efficient, such as programming languages like R or Python, we need to structure our data the way that computers can read the data.

18 October, 10 am – 12 noon

Systematic style reviews – Tips and tools for getting from start to finish

Learn about tips and tools that can simplify your systematic and systematic-style reviews from start to finish. We will discuss guidelines and protocols, research questions and search strategies, and screening and documenting your searches. This session will be most valuable for researchers in any discipline who are considering or conducting a systematic style review

18 October, 1 pm – 2 pm

EndNote Q and A

Learn the basics and start using EndNote using the Library’s EndNote Basics Tutorial, then register to join the Endnote Q&A live virtual session. Bring your questions and get answers and tips from specialist librarians and other EndNote users.

19 October, 10 am – 12 noon

Literature Search Strategies for Systematic Quantitative Literature Reviews: how to find papers and where to look

Learn the steps to undertake the literature research necessary for your systematic quantitative literature review. On completion of this workshop, participants should be able to: – create a search string from a research question – create search strings using boolean operators – apply a search string to the library catalogue – locate and use library databases – set up tables to record your search methods – apply PRISMA protocols for SQLR

25 October, 11 am – 12 noon

Researcher profiles – ORCID

ORCID – Open Researcher and Contributor ID – provides researchers with a persistent unique identifier. ORCID prevents name ambiguity and connects publications, datasets and affiliations under a researcher’s record.

25 October, 1 pm – 2.30 pm

Organisation and Evaluation of resources for Systematic Quantitative Literature Reviews

In this workshop we will organise the papers you have found for your literature review and then discuss means to evaluate these resources for a systematic style literature review.

26 October, 12 noon – 12.45 pm

Managing your Research Data

An introduction to Data Management practices and to data related resources and services available to Griffith researchers throughout the various stages of the research life cycle.

27 October, 10 am – 11 am

Digital Tools for Research

Become familiar with a wide range of digital tools available to assist you throughout your research journey.

27 October 1 pm – 3 pm

Navigating the Publishing Maze for Environment and Science Early Career Researchers

On completion, participants should be able to identify and resolve advanced academic publishing issues. These involve authorship, selection of journals and relationships with editors. Includes an introduction to understanding the process of peer reviewing and newer publishing models including open scholarship and transformative agreements, as well as promoting scholarly publishing resources and assistance on offer at Griffith.
