Technical Report
Full-text available
Research Data Management (RDM) covers a wide spectrum of activities and requirements. Spurred by some funder policy requirements, institutions have begun to address the policies, processes, systems, services, behaviours and cultures that are necessary across the lifecycle of research data. Drawing on a series of informal, semi-structured interviews...

Cambridge Core - Communications, Information Theory and Security - The Future of Scholarly Communication - edited by Deborah Shorley
Conference Paper
Governments, institutions, and individual researchers are all interested in understanding the performance and impact of research and knowledge exchange. The media and others are also engaged. However, producing acceptable and meaningful indicators, let alone measures, is challenging. Timescales for research investment to be translated into societal...
Article
Full-text available
The thirteen essays in The Future of Scholarly Communication are divided into two parts called Changing Researcher Behavior and Other Players: Roles and Responsibilities. They cover most of the hot topics in scholarly communication, including open access, institutional repositories, data mining, and the future roles of libraries in the scholarly co...
Chapter
Full-text available
University research strategies make statements about research ambitions, but rarely speak directly about scholarly communications. At the same time, communication of all sorts has become central to a university, whether to support recruitment, present a public profile, or to respond to events. This chapter seeks to explore the relationship between...
Article
Full-text available
Recognising the existence of customer-supplier roles and relationships in the performance of research can lead to an improvement in the management, and hence delivery, of research. Research, especially university-based research, is often managed with a light touch, with the researchers operating independently, and neither their institution nor thei...

A SHEFC-funded Regional Strategic Initiative, this report is the outcome of a year's collaborative work by the members of the Scottish Universities Research Policy Consortium (SURPC).
Article
The paper considers the nature of design and how the coordination of diverse resources is required to enable the many different factors that affect a product throughout its life to be considered. A discussion of related work illustrates some of the methods for organizing knowledge and controlling design activity. A software architecture that is bas...

Article
Full-text available
Mechanical engineering design is a broad subject area covering many topics and bas influences upon many other engineering disciplines and activities. Computer support for mechanical engineering design activity has been in draughting Systems and analysis packages, but there has been little in conceptual design assistance. This paper presents a numbe...
