Research Week Day 3Posted by in research week
The conclusion of day 3 of Research Week at UCT Libraries marks the halfway point of the long awaited event. It has been quite an eventful week with panel discussions, author workshops and a lot of banter around the barista as attendees patiently wait on that aromatic cup of java.
Research Ethics and Open Access were the hot topics at Research Week yesterday. The morning session was lead by Dr Robert McLaughlin from UCT’s office of Research Integrity. Joining him was Prof Francois Viruly from the department of Construction Economics, Prof Mastin Prinsloo from the UCT School of Education and Dr Bert Mohr from the UCT Centre for Animal Research, for a lively discussion on Research and the Ethics that underpin it.
This was followed by a teleconference presentation by Iryna Kuchma from EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) out of Kiev, who opened the afternoon session on Open Access. Partnering with her on the topic was UCT’s Laura Czerniewicz and Ina Smith from Stellenbosch University.
