Hosted by lecturer Rob O’Connor, the podcast dives into what’s involved in research, highlighting some of the work being carried out by researchers in SETU.

We talk about all things “open access” with David Kane from the SETU library. David talks about how research was published in the past and explains why there’s been a shift towards open access publishing over the last number of years. He describes various models of open access publishing and talks about how your University’s library can likely help you achieve open access publishing. The concept of citation is also discussed, which may be especially useful for undergraduate students or individuals new to research.
