Åpne forskerkurs

The UiB University Library continues its popular webinar series on the principles of Open Science in autumn 2022. Open science is a research practice where processes and results are openly available under conditions that promotes sharing, use, cooperation, and societal responsibility.

Starting Friday August 19th at 10:00 CET, the Open Science webinar series will take place every other week during the autumn semester. Please follow the links for more information and to sign up for the webinars. We are looking forward to seeing you!

The UiB University Library and its Digital Lab offer a wide range of interesting courses and events – please find more information in the calendar.

Data management Plans

Data management plan (DMP) describes how data in a research project will be collected, processed, and made available. Writing a DMP is good scientific practice which helps structuring the data management in a research project and a requirement by research funders, e.g. The Norwegian Research Council or Horizon Europe. See also our information page UiB Library – Data Management Plans.

How to make your data open & FAIR
Researchers are encouraged to make their data openly available as early as possible in the research process, and most funders, e.g. Norwegian Research Council or Horizon Europe, and publishers require that the research data from a project is made openly available. In the course you will get an introduction to how you can make your research data open and FAIR, and how to archive your data in our institutional archive UiB Open Research Data. See also our information page UiB Library – Open Access to Research Data.

Open Access publishing step-by-step

Governments, institutions, and research funders expect researchers to make their research openly available. What is open access, why should you make your research publications openly available and what services and support is available at UiB? See also our information page: UiB Library – Open Access Publishing

Make your research visible using researcher profiles
Having a researcher profile is a great way to showcase contributions to your field and open science engagement. This seminar will demonstrate how to use ORCID and other researcher profiles to showcase your work. See also MittUiB online course UBB103 Profiles and Publishing Statistics and our information page UiB Library – Bibliometric services and analysis.

 Open Access Week

Open Access Week is an annual scholarly communication event focusing on open access and related topics. The national Norwegian program is the result of a collaboration between UiB and several other institutions and infrastructures. Stay tuned!

 Finding & reusing research data

Reusing published research data can open new avenues of research and avoids unnecessary duplication of efforts. The webinar will give an introduction to FAIR research data as a resource, explain data citation, and demonstrate strategies to efficiently discover datasets in your discipline.

Workshop on Single Molecule-based Super-resolution Microscopy

Workshop on Single Molecule-based Super-resolution Microscopy: from Acquisition to Analysis, from Theory to Applications

Dear Colleagues,

Are you studying proteins or RNAs in the plasma membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, or mitochondria? Are you curious whether these molecules move freely or undergo confined movement, how fast and how far far they move, how they are dynamically arranged at nanoscale resolution in live cells, or how they change behavior after a pharmacological stimulation or in a disease model? If so, then you should not miss this workshop at the Department of Biomedicine at UiB.

The core facility for Single-Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) located at the Department of Biomedicine (UiB) has recently been opened to all users. SMLM is a state-of-the-art technology, which dramatically improves spatial resolution over standard, diffraction-limited microscopy. Major biological insights have been made using this technology into the spatial and temporal organization of proteins and nucleic acids within subcellular compartments (such as nucleus, cytoplasm and plasma membrane) at nanoscale resolution. To help potential users become familiar with this cutting-edge technology, we will organize at least two workshops (1st in 2022, 2nd in 2023) addressing both theoretical and experimental considerations for SMLM, including fluorescent labeling, sample preparation, hardware requirements, image acquisition, analysis in live cells. Several outstanding scientists, who have developed novel labeling/acquisition/analysis for single molecule-based super-resolution imaging of protein or RNA, have confirmed their participation. This is a great opportunity to have a face-to-face interaction with these scientists, and bring your research questions and get inputs from them.

For detailed information, see here.

For registration (FREE), please follow this link.

Registration deadline: 24th August 2022.

We look forward to your attendance!

Biblioteket tilbyr følgende kurs høsten 2022 – meld deg på!

  • Introduksjon til Endnote
  • Søkekurs i PubMed og Embase
  • Introduksjon til systematiske oversikter
  • Litteraturstudier for studenter

Kursene skal etter planen holdes som hybridløsning, hvor det er mulighet for å delta både fysisk og digitalt via Zoom. Kursene er fortrinnsvis for ansatte og stipendiater. De fleste studenter får bibliotekkurs som en del av sin studieplan. Dersom ikke det er tilfelle kan de melde seg på disse kursene. Det siste kurset er spesielt for studenter som vil vite mer om litteraturoppgaver, og som ikke har hatt eget kurs om det.

Kursdatoer, påmelding og mer informasjon finnes på https://www.uib.no/ub/126018/kurs-og-veiledning#kurs-med-p-melding

Innhold i kursene:

Introduksjon til EndNote: I kurset lærer du å bygge opp et EndNote-bibliotek og lage en referanseliste i Word. Kurset består av korte demonstrasjoner og praktiske øvelser. Kurset dekker: Lage et EndNote-bibliotek, importere referanser, manuell innlegging, lage grupper, finne fulltekst, sette inn referanser i en tekst, lage og formatere en litteraturliste.

Søkekurs i PubMed og Embase: Alle bruker PubMed, men med litt ekstra kunnskap kan du gjøre mer effektive søk. I kurset viser vi for eksempel hvordan du kan bruke emneordene MeSH, eller utnytte filtre i Clinical queries. Embase er den andre store medisinske artikkeldatabasen som dekker en del andre tidsskrifter enn PubMed/Medline. Embase er derfor et viktig supplement til PubMed.

Introduksjon til systematiske oversikter (systematic reviews): Kurset gir en introduksjon i temaet systematiske oversikter. Vi gjennomgår ulike databaser for å finne systematiske oversikter, og prosessen å selv utføre en systematisk oversikt som å skrive en protokoll, forberedelser til søking, tips og verktøy for datahåndtering og kvalitetsvurdering, og rapportering. Vi gir også informasjon om hvilken hjelp og støtte biblioteket kan gi i arbeidet med systematiske oversikter.

Litteraturstudier for studenter: Kurset er til studenter som skal skrive litteraturoppgave som bachelor- eller masteroppgave, og som ikke har fått eget kurs som del av studieprogrammet. Vi går gjennom prosessen i en litteraturoppgave. Kurset dekker forberedelsene til et litteratursøk, hvordan du skal arbeide deg gjennom alle treff og hvordan du skal dokumentere metodene. Vi ser på noen eksempler og svarer på spørsmål.

Writing course: Horizon Europe and beyond

The reality is that writing research proposals is time-consuming with a low success rate. This course will provide a practical guide on how to build on past and current projects funded by the EU, navigate the vast Horizon Europe framework program, and write competitive research proposals.

Course content
The European framework program Horizon Europe is the EU’s main funding programme for research and innovation. Running from 2021 to 2027 with a budget of 95.5 billion euros, it is the most extensive research funding programme globally.

However, the complexity and documentation render the program challenging to navigate. These challenges are the drivers behind developing a practical how-to course on using the vast amount of data in the EU system to think outside the box and understand and navigate the Horizon Europe framework program.

Learning outcome
Participants will get an overview of:
• How to take advantage of past and current projects funded by the EU Commission to think outside the box?
• How to navigate Horizon Europe – Pillar II to find relevant ‘Call to Action’?
• How to write the core concept of a research proposal?

Target group
Suitable for those who want to learn more about practical creativity, Horizon Europe and writing research proposals. For this round, the target group is associate professors, professors and experienced researchers (with some years of research experience after their defense and interested in finding out what is relevant for them in the EU funding landscape).

Time and Venue
Tuesday 31 May at 09.00-11.30 at the Eitri Medical Incubator, first floor.

Registration
Please register by filling out this simple form: Horizon Europe and Beyond – a tool to navigate the EU landscape (uib.no)

Introduksjon til EndNote: I kurset lærer du å bygge opp et EndNote-bibliotek og lage en referanseliste i Word. Kurset består av korte demonstrasjoner og praktiske øvelser. Kurset dekker: Lage et EndNote-bibliotek, importere referanser, manuell innlegging, lage grupper, finne fulltekst, sette inn referanser i en tekst, lage og formatere en litteraturliste.

Søkekurs i PubMed og Embase: Alle bruker PubMed, men med litt ekstra kunnskap kan du gjøre mer effektive søk. I kurset viser vi for eksempel hvordan du kan bruke emneordene MeSH, eller utnytte filtre i Clinical queries. Embase er den andre store medisinske artikkeldatabasen som dekker en del andre tidsskrifter enn PubMed/Medline. For å få et bedre overblikk over litteraturen innenfor ett fagområde er Embase er derfor et viktig supplement til PubMed.

Introduksjon til systematiske oversikter (systematic reviews): Kurset gir en introduksjon i temaet systematiske oversikter. Vi gjennomgår ulike databaser for å finne systematiske oversikter, og prosessen å selv utføre en systematisk oversikt som å skrive en protokoll, forberedelser til søking, tips og verktøy for datahåndtering og kvalitetsvurdering, og rapportering. Vi gir også informasjon om hvilken hjelp og støtte biblioteket kan gi i arbeidet med systematiske oversikter.

Short description:

Introduction to EndNote: EndNote is a tool for managing references. The course covers how to build your own EndNote library, how to use references from EndNote in the writing process with Word, formatting the text and generating literature lists.. Other functionalities like manually adding references, grouping, removing duplicates, and importing full text will also be covered.

Searching in PubMed and Embase: Everyone can use PubMed. However, with some extra knowledge you can search more efficiently. In the course we demonstrate the use of subject headings MeSH, and the use of filters for quick limiting to clinical queries (like diagnostic studies, or intervention studies). Embase is another important medical database which covers a number of different journals than PubMed/Medline. Therefore, it is a valuable supplement to PubMed, if you want to get a better overview over the literature within your field.

Introduction to systematic reviews: The course gives an introduction to systematic reviews. The library presents several databases for finding systematic reviews, and gives an overview over the process of doing your own systematic review: write a protocol, prepare the search, data management, quality appraisal, and guidelines for reporting. We will also inform about the role of the library in the different phases of the work with a systematic review.
