In November, participate in the Open Access Month

And re-discover our services for research and open science.
Learn more.

This year, Sciences Po Library meets you to understand your research methods, your difficulties and your needs in terms of services. Through five newsletters and interviews (researchers, doctoral students, archivist), we offer you to re-discover our solutions of services for research and open science at Sciences Po Library.

To receive our newsletters, sign up here.

In parallel, the Research library invites you to follow a cycle of three webinars on the thesis exercise : on Zoom, at lunchtime and during one hour, explore a new theme with our subject librarians.
If you want, you can follow webinars on your laptop in the training room of the Research library.

They will discuss the issue of copyright and its implications when you are a junior researcher:

  • What are the risks if I decide to disseminate my work in open access?

  • In what situations does the educational exception apply?
  • How can I use images, even if they are free of copyright?

He proposes to build together a data story based  on the anecdotes, case studies and problems you encounter in managing your data. These are the material/files you produce and collect during your thesis: 404 error, hard drive crash or USB key loss, files with unclear names, pop-up window "oops impossible to open this file. The format is not supported", incomprehensible file name... The webinar aims to collectively provide tips and answers to these and other questions.
