ECA staff and postgraduate training event: open access for practice-based research

Reading time: < 1 minute

A training event run by the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, for ECA staff and postgraduate students, will take place in May.

The event will guide Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) staff on open-access publication for practice-based research, including navigating copyright, the creation of practice-based portfolios and updated guidance for submitting portfolios to REF2029.

The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences set up the event after research was completed as part of the CAHSS Open Access Portfolio Project, which has run from August 2023 to May 2024. The project aimed to publish the practice-based portfolios of ECA staff, submitted as part of REF2021, on an open-access platform.

This half-day seminar and workshop will include presentations from the Open Access Portfolio Project team and ECA staff whose portfolios have been made open as part of the project. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions regarding copyright and plans for REF2029. Tea and coffee will be provided, and the event will close with a reception where ECA research staff and practice-based students will be able to meet and discuss their work.
