In an effort to address this, the UKRSA has developed a list of resources relevant to researchers. There are a variety of issues about which researchers regularly seek information, and several organisations that have developed resources for the benefit of researchers. These resources are listed here by category.

These resources currently include presentations and publications that are used by committee members for a variety of purposes, as well as the output of projects undertaken by working groups that incorporate UKRSA and Vitae members.
If you have an issue or resource that you think we should list, please contact us. If you would like to contribute to the development of this list of resources, please refer to How to Participate for more information.
The UK’s research community is one of the most successful in the world. To sustain this position, it is essential that we keep up with and exploit new opportunities in a rapidly changing information environment.

With funding and resources provided by The Open University and Vitae Innovate 2009, Dr. Shailey Minocha has developed a collection of online tools for researchers as part of Open research: the application of e-knowledge tools in researcher careers training and development. These tools will be provided on the Vitae web site.
