How does it fit with institutional strategy?
What are the main features of the provision?
What are the aims and expected outcomes?
The workshop aims to enable researchers to manage and using increasingly large databases of references, to be able to search for, find and incorporate references rapidly when writing large documents (e.g. a thesis), to use the advanced tools in Endnote for organising the database and automatically downloading full text of journal articles into the database.
The course also covers creating a single document reference list from multiple chapters with their own references and the various methods available within the cite while you write tools to enable unbrokien concentration on the content of the document without switching between Endnote and Word.
Aims are to enable researchers to manage and use large reference databases.
Outcomes are more rapid and accurate finding and use of references within a database.
Are there any pre-requisites for engagement, e.g. levels of skill, years of experience, essential pre-activities?
How many participate in each 'activity'?
Participants are expected to already to have familairity with the package, as given by our intoductory courses.
