Researchers’ Fair at University Library – Friday 27th October from 11am-3pm

The final programme has been announced – find out more here!

On Friday 27th October the entrance level of the University Library will be taken over for our first Researchers’ Fair. Open to all researchers at Glasgow, from current doctoral students to the most experienced researcher – the Fair brings together an exciting mix of practical advice, support, games, talks and activities.

The Fair opens at 1100 with a series of lightning (5-minute) talks from experts across the University. At midday, The Conversation Scotland Editor, Steven Vass, will be giving a short talk on what they want, what they don’t want and how to get your research read by a million readers. At 1230, Elsevier’s Michaela Kurschildgen will be introducing you to Mendeley. Mendeley offers tools for every stage of your research career – find out how to collaborate easily with other researchers online, make your data discoverable and boost your career! The Conversation talk will re-run at 1300 after which we have more lightning talks until close at 1500.


If that wasn’t enough, there will be opportunities to play a game of How to Fail your PhD at 1200 and 1330, speed date our collections treasures from 1215 to 1300, and make artwork inspired by the archives from 1315 to 1415! Elsevier will also be running training on Scopus – the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. The Scopus training requires registration all other events are drop-in.

In between all that, recharge your batteries with some light refreshments, pick up some free goodies, and take some sound advice from University staff at our many stalls.
