Outputs and plans for dissemination

Outputs will include, at minimum:

  • at least one article in each of a peer-reviewed academic and professional journal

  • guidance for HEIs in the UK and internationally on regulations and procedures for the creation, supervision, examination and archiving of digital/multimodal theses and dissertations

  • an article in the Times Higher Educational Supplement and in The Chronicle of Higher Education (USA)

  • an edited, research-based book submitted to a major international publisher, e.g. Sage, Routledge

  • managed web pages on the sites of each of the participating institutions, and links made to other HEIs in the UK

  • links with existing bodies and networks, especially the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) and EthOS (British Library repository of electronic theses)

Dissemination will be ongoing during the seminar series, via the dedicated web pages. Papers will be put on the web pages in advance of the seminars, with an invitation to respond before, during and after the seminars themselves. The final conference will invite a wider range of academic and professional users of the research, providing a showcase of the work completed during the seminar series. A communications strategy, in line with guidelines and suggestions on the ESRC Society Today web pages, will be developed. Target audiences are Education and social science departments in UK universities, and research students registered in thosedepartments.
