13:00 – 13.50: Understanding Open Access: the researcher’s perspective

This introductory session on Open Access (OA) publishing will guide researchers through what is OA and the key terms, what Gold and Green OA means, why researchers publish OA (drawing on some case studies), OA journal options at Taylor & Francis, and how to avoid so-called ‘predatory’ publishers. The session will finish by focusing on raising the profile of your research and what tools and tips you can utilise to achieve this.


13:50 – 14.00: Break


14.00 – 15.15: How to be an effective peer reviewer

This practical session is aimed at researchers who haven’t yet peer reviewed a paper for a journal, or for those who would like to understand more on what they should be considering once they have accepted an invitation to review. It will guide you through different types of peer review, the benefits of being a reviewer, give you hints and tips on how to approach reviewing for the first time, and offer a quick guide to using the systems and the importance of ethics in peer review.


The session will finish with some group work, where participants will get the opportunity to apply what they have learnt.


Presentations will be in English and Hungarian.


We look forward to meet you!
