Enhancing the visibility of your research output: a hands-on workshop on how to upload your research papers on the UM institutional repository - OAR@UM
OAR@UM is UM’s institutional repository that serves as a platform for authors and researchers wanting to upload their research output for open access. Open access enhances research dissemination and visibility and eventually augments the researcher's academic reputation and that of UM.
The session will be divided in two parts:
a concise overview of open access and the benefits of uploading research on OAR@UM.
a hands-on session - Uploading research on OAR@UM.
During the session, participants will:
create a submitter account
request permission to upload their research in a particular community/collection
upload their research using the self-deposit method
complete the required description fields using appropriate metadata
learn about mediated deposit and consent forms
Participants are to bring with them a PDF of their research publication so that it can be uploaded on OAR@UM during the hands-on session. Duration: 1 hour
Audience: academic, administrative, technical and research staff carrying out research and project managers working on EU-funded projects.
Contact us for more information or if you would like to organise an individual session.
