Online resource 'Research Professional' now available

The Research Office has taken out an institutional subscription to Research Professional – an online resource providing a comprehensive database of research funding opportunities, access to Research Fortnight, and research policy and practice news from around the world.

The subscription is open to everyone at Loughborough. All academic staff will be sent an email from the team at Research Professional, which will contain their personal log in details. If you haven’t received this email by Friday 11 July, contact Dr Kristen Clements.

The Loughborough account has been customised to reflect the six Research Challenge areas which you’ll see highlighted on the right-hand side when you log on. You will be able to align yourself to one or more of these Research Challenge areas. Each of the Research Challenge Development Managers will be posting saved searches, magazines and calendars on the start page of the respective Research Challenge areas.

You can also set up email alerts to stay informed of the latest funding opportunities and/or news articles in your chosen area.

Training sessions on Research Professional will be run on demand, in the Library, from mid August. The first two dates are 14 August and 11 September, 10am-12noon. If you would like to attend one of these events, contact Dr Kristen Clements.

Details of further training will be announced in the next couple of months.
