This week saw current #citylis student, Amy Rees, publish an article about the ways in which research can be communicated and shared via Altmetric through discussing “the articles published in Health Policy and Planning with the highest Altmetric Attention Scores in 2015 and 2016″.
The article is titled, “Falsified medicine, gendered health care treatment, and corruption in Health Policy and Planning” and was published on the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine‘s Health Policy and Planning Debated blog (it will also be published on Altmetric’s blog).
Meanwhile, next week, current #citylis students, Tom Pink and David Phillips, will be presenting on their ongoing dissertation research at an event hosted by the Institute of Historical Research. The half-day workshop, Emerging Research in Libraries & Information Science, will take place on Friday August 19th and feature current Library and Information Science students talking about their own research.
Representing #citylis, both students’ work will feature in a section of the programme called Impacts of Technology, with Tom asking, Has the Internet Changed the Way We Think? The effect of the network on user behaviour; while David will consider the impact of robots in his presentation: Robots in the Library: gauging attitudes towards developments in robotics and AI, and the potential implications for library services.
The workshop will begin at 1pm, is free to attend and refreshments will be provided. If you would like to attend the workshop, or any part of it, please contact Siobhan Morris (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register.
