Researchers of tomorrow - born digital?

A study tracking young doctoral student’s information-seeking behaviour ran a workshop yesterday to discuss the future of research in a digital age and how researchers are using new online tools.

It also looked at the issues posed by the rapidily changing landscape of scholarly communications technologies.

Funded by the British Library and JISC, this three year study on the research behaviour of the ?Generation Y? scholar is being undertaken by Education for Change, in collaboration with The Research Partnership

At the workshop, the RIN?s Liaison and Partnerships Officer, Branwen Hide discussed the way research is currently being undertaken and the possibilities for the future, particularly by using new digital technologies. Her presentation is available below or vist our Slideshare account.

Further information about the study is available on the Researchers of Tomorrow website.
