The Centre for research and development in research communications at the University of Nottingham
The way that research is communicated around the world is changing rapidly, opening up access for more people to more research than has been possible before. This brings challenges and exciting opportunities for authors, investigators and others in the research process.
The Centre for Research Communications (CRC) is based at the University of Nottingham and helps support and inform these changes and new ideas. The CRC houses the portfolio of open-access projects, services and initiatives currently undertaken by the University. These include the home of the SHERPA partnership; the open-access services RoMEO, Juliet and OpenDOAR; the Repositories Support Project (RSP), and the University contribution to the European and international projects MedOANet, OpenAIRE, Dart-Europe and NECOBELAC. Project and service funders include JISC, the European Commission, RLUK, the Wellcome Trust and SPARCEurope. We host visiting scholars and post-graduate students working in open access and act as an information exchange within the community.
The CRC acts as a focus for new work in the area not just within the University, but also nationally and internationally. Bill Hubbard, Head of the CRC says: "We develop innovative research and development activities across the whole field of research communications. This is an exciting time for authors and researchers. We are beginning to leave behind straightforward electronic analogues of our centuries-old print world and realise the possibilities of new and far richer forms of research communication using openly accessible articles and data."
The CRC works with researchers, funders, institutions and publishers, nationally and internationally to improve research communications. Contact us for further information.
