New guides available in RADAR

Over the past few months we have added new guides to our ‘Help and Contact’ pages on RADAR and we thought we would let you know what’s new!

Our first new guide was highly requested by RADAR users and explains ‘How to export a list of your citations from RADAR’. It can be accessed here:

http://radar.gsa.ac.uk/5497/

This guide provides step by step instructions on how to export a list of citations from RADAR in several different formats, such as HTML and RIS (Research Information System) which enables you to export your citations into reference management software such as Endnote and Refworks.

We understand that re-entering information you have already provided elsewhere can be frustrating, so we have also provided information in this guide on how to bulk upload a list of publications you already have in RADAR to ResearchGate.  It should be noted, however, that using sites such as ResearchGate is voluntary and you should still deposit your research outputs in RADAR.

If you are a new member of staff and want to transfer your publications from your old institution’s repository to RADAR then please contact the RADAR team (radar@gsa.ac.uk) who can help you do this.

What else is new?

We have also created a set of Open Access FAQs which can be accessed here:

http://radar.gsa.ac.uk/5578/

This set of FAQs will be useful to those who are completely new to Open Access (OA), as well as those who already have knowledge of it. The second half of the FAQs will be of particular interest if you have questions about the OA policy for the next REF.  The FAQs cover queries such as “What is OA?” and “What does the REF OA policy mean for me?” and explains what you need to do to ensure your research is REF eligible.

If there are any questions on open access that we haven’t answered please send us an email (radar@gsa.ac.uk) – we would be happy to help!
