UKRSA Projects and Publications


The UKRSA initiates research projects to survey opinion and develop additional resources for use by UK research staff. These projects are generally tied to surveys of research staff and local research staff associations, with resources and additional expertise provided by Vitae.

UKRSA's most recent publication is the 'Tips for researchers taking maternity, paternity, adoption or parental leave and advice for institutions and employers' leaflet which was launched at the Vitae Researcher Development International Conference 2019.

We need researchers to suggest ideas for future projects, and we invite you to contribute your research skill set to helping us collect and analyse data. Involvement can kick start your career in researcher development or policy analysis. If this is something you would like to be involved with, then please .
