Call for participants: University researchers working in medicine or education departments

Are you a university researcher in a department of medicine or education?

Would you like to take part in a research project exploring open access to research publications outside academia? You can find out more about the project here and see the whole ‘Call for Participants’ here.

I’m interested in hearing about your experiences, and opinions on widening access to research.

You would be asked to take part in a face-to-face interview for around one hour (although it could be longer or shorter if you wish). You should be based in the UK, and if possible, I will be able to travel to interview you at a place of your choosing. If this is not possible, some interviews may be conducted over Skype. The interview data will be anonymised, and analysed as part of my PhD thesis, and any journal articles, book chapters and conference proceedings which result from the thesis.

If you are interested in taking part, please email me at ebnunn1@sheffield.ac.uk and I will be in contact to arrange an interview.

This project has been granted ethical approval by the University of Sheffield
