Research Support Statement
"In a rapidly evolving research and information environment the library aims to support research in all disciplines across the research life cycle, from securing funding awards, to the dissemination and evaluation of your research and its impact.
This covers a broad range of activities, from the training and support provided through the Researcher Development and Leading Research Programmes, to enabling researchers to meet the open access and research data management requirements set by funders and the management and maintenance of our institutional repository Durham Research Online.
We are heavily involved in supporting the university's REF submissions, and can provide additional advice and services on bibliometrics and citation analysis."
