Overview

This JISC-sponsored roadshow for researchers and those who support them, will introduce the concept of e-research and some of the distributed resources now available for research. A discussion session will address how e-research fits into broader debates and practices in digital scholarship.

We will hear about some of the national services available for e-research and also about related work within the Open University, including the DISCO (DIgital SChOlarship) website, a portal for OU staff interested in learning about digital scholarship.

Speakers include David Fergusson, National e-Science Centre, Graham Pryor, Digital Curation Centre and Martin Weller from the OU’s Institute for Educational Technology (IET).
