Meet the University Library Research Services Unit

The Library Research Services Unit provide specialist services to enhance the research activities of the University. We manage the University's repository White Rose Research Online (WRRO) and provide guidance on making your research outputs open access. We also manage a publications fund to pay for article processing charges where this is required by funders (Gold open access),

We provide support for research data management including guidance on writing data management plans and we manage the University's data catalogue ORDA powered by Sheffield figshare

A key component of our work across the University is advocacy and awareness raising activities on the evolving nature of scholarly communications and we regularly organize information sessions for example on open access and the REF and managing research data. We can deliver presentations or workshops tailored to particular departments/research groups. Please contact us via the emails below to discuss your requirements
