Emerald Group Publishing Limited is making a range of educational podcasts freely available for a limited period. The podcasts cover a range of subjects, including Accounting and Finance, Human Resources Management, Marketing and Logistics, and more. They are available now for download at: http://info.emeraldinsight.com/learning/podcasts/index.htm
The podcasts have been specially written by David Pollitt, Information and
Research Officer at the University of Bradford’s European Briefing Unit. David Pollit has also edited various journals on Strategic Management, Human Resource Management and Training.
For some years the Department of Research & Innovation has taken a subscription to ResearchResearch, the leading publisher of news and information for the international research community, allowing staff to hold a personal account and tailor funding alerts to their individual academic interests. A new version of the ResearchResearch website, called Research Professional has been launched, with greater flexibility and several new features. You can access it at http://new.researchresearch.com/
If you already hold an account it should have been moved automatically from the current website to Research Professional. All of your account settings will remain the same, your current username and password will still work, and any email alerts, saved searches or bookmarked items will be transferred to the new site. To register for an account use the self-registration button on the home page or contact the administrator, Mrs. Chris Beynon in the Department of Research & Innovation ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Video tutorials and a downloadable quick start guide are available on the new website.
