Vitae’s 2016 UK Three Minute Thesis competition

Public engagement in research: Taylor & Francis sponsor Vitae's 2016 UK Three Minute Thesis competition

Taylor & Francis will be the headline sponsor for this year's Vitae national Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT®), the largest national 3MT® competition in the world.

Originally developed by The University of Queensland, Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a celebration of the dynamic and exciting work conducted by doctoral researchers across the UK. The competition challenges participants to explain their research in just three minutes, and in a way that can be understood by a non-specialist audience.

ORCiD: a primer for librarians

As a librarian, you may be compiling and tracking the research output at your institution. ORCiD, the digital identifier that links a researcher to their work, can help you by ensuring research activities can be easily distinguished and identified.

At Taylor & Francis, ORCiDs can be added to a manuscript as researchers make their online submission, with some of our journals now requesting that lead authors include these as standard.

But what is the role for librarians in promoting the use of ORCiD and how (and why) should you be raising awareness and encouraging their uptake in your institution? Recently published in Medical Reference Services Quarterly is a primer for librarians on ORCiD.

Read the article now and our advice for authors on registering for and including an ORCiD in their online submission.

HEFCE Open Access policy: guidance for researchers publishing with us

April 1st saw the implementation of the Higher Education Funding Council for England's (HEFCE) Open Access policy. To ensure published research from UK-based authors is eligible for the next Research Excellence Framework in 2020, journal articles now need to be deposited in an institutional or subject repository as soon after acceptance as possible (and within three months of receiving the acceptance notice from the editorial office).

To ensure researchers who publish in our journals are clear on what action they need to take, we have created a visual guide for you to share. Whether you're publishing in a subscription journal or open access with Taylor & Francis, Routledge or Cogent OA, you can check what you need to do, with which version of your article, and when, using the guide.


The evolving role of librarians in India

Agents of value: the evolving role of librarians in India

Academia is experiencing significant change in technology and research methodology. The role of the librarian in India is transforming to keep up with this digital change.

In a new series of interviews, librarians at several academic libraries in India, including South Asian University, Delhi Technological University; Jawaharlal Nehru University and National Institute of Technology (NIT) Patna have spoken to Taylor & Francis about the multi-faceted role of the librarian in India and how this role is undergoing essential changes to continue to meet the needs of library users.

We found it fascinating to hear how the librarian roles are getting redefined to better understand the needs of the millennial library customer while embracing the potential of technology with more diverse - even ‘unconventional’ - skills than before. We are pleased to be able to showcase these as part of the Taylor & Francis Library Voices project, demonstrating the huge contribution libraries in India are adding to global library services.
