We offer bespoke briefings, for example as seminars or at college or discipline meetings.

Recently, we ran a WEBINAR for postgraduate and early career researchers and attended a college research doctoral committee meeting to talk about paying for open access and other publishing charges. Sessions can be as short or long as you need and will be tailored to the requirements of your department.
