Open access for recipients of external funding
All research staff who receive or anticipate receipt of external funding must also complete the additional module along with the [Open Access Induction] module. This [Funder] module ensures that researchers are aware of funder requirements, eligibility for Open Access block grants, the University’s Institutional Open Access fund, and support available. It is important to complete this additional module to comply with Cardiff University’s Open Access Publishing Policy. The module can be accessed at the end of the current module or on the left-hand menu on the Open Access training page. This module aims to:
  • ensure that researchers are aware of funder requirements
  • explain eligibility for Open Access block grants and the University's Institutional Open Access fund
  • ensure that researchers are aware of tools and support available to answer Open Access questions
Mynediad Agored I’r rhai sy’n Derbyn Arian Allanol

Sylwer

Rhaid i bob aelod o staff ymchwil sy'n derbyn neu'n rhagweld derbyn cyllid allanol hefyd gwblhau'r modiwl ychwanegol hwn ynghyd â'r modiwl [Sesiwn ymsefydlu mynediad agored]. Mae'n rhaid i’r [ariannwr] yn sicrhau bod ymchwilwyr yn ymwybodol o ofynion cyllidwyr, cymhwysedd ar gyfer grantiau bloc Mynediad Agored, cronfa Mynediad Agored Sefydliadol y Brifysgol, a’r cymorth sydd ar gael. Mae’n bwysig cwblhau’r modiwl ychwanegol hwn er mwyn cydymffurfio â Pholisi Cyhoeddi Mynediad Agored Prifysgol Caerdydd. Gellir cyrchu'r modiwl ar ddiwedd y modiwl cyfredol neu ar y ddewislen ar y chwith ar y dudalen hyfforddiant Mynediad Agored.

Nodau'r tiwtorial

Yn y tiwtorial hwn, byddwch yn dysgu sut i:
  • wneud yn siŵr bod yr ymchwilwyr yn ymwybodol o ofynion yr ariannwr
  • esbonio cymhwysedd ar gyfer grantiau bloc Mynediad Agored a chronfa Mynediad Agored Sefydliadol y Brifysgol
  • wneud yn siŵr bod ymchwilwyr yn ymwybodol o'r adnoddau a'r cymorth sydd ar gael i ateb cwestiynau am Fynediad Agored

Bibliometrics 4 – Informing journal selection using databases, online tools and metrics
Publication databases such as Scopus, Web of Science and Dimensions are ideal for a literature search in a particular subject. They also have a wealth of additional analytical tools and information that is helpful with informing a choice of journal. The kind of questions that can be answered are:
  • Which journals are already publishing articles in this subject?
  • Where are my colleagues publishing?
  • How many articles does this journal publish every year?
  • Who publishes this journal?
  • How much attention do articles in this journal get from social media?
