The observant reader might notice that we’ve introduced a new category on our blog, called “Free resources”. We’re using it to collect blog posts that will lead you to all of the guides, infographics, useful overviews, survey results, etc that have been produced for piirus.ac.uk. Over the last couple of years we’ve been growing this blog and our offer to researchers.
Whilst you can find other researchers to collaborate with and our latest Piirus Associate offer over on piirus.ac.uk itself, here on the blog we cover all sorts of themes. These include research collaboration, crossing disciplines, the digital academic and academic consultancy, as our blog categories show. We’ve created some guides and infographics and you can see an overview of the free resources available to date here in this blog post, as well as in the free resources category itself.
