Research Day 2015 - Information and links.

Slides developed for SCM Research Development Day, 27 February 2015, covering the following topics: * Overview of SCM research support; * New initiatives for 2015 (including Professional Practice, new requirements for research reporting); * The art of the research statement; * The new publishing landscape (open access, recognising predatory journals, and more); * SCM Higher Degree Research overview (Kathleen Nelson).

Visas and visitors

Every non-Australian visitor requires the appropriate visa for the activities they perform at the Con, whether paid or unpaid. Visitors must consult their Embassy for visa advice, and the University, as employer, must have a copy of every visitor’s visa before any activities commence.  

It is mandatory for all staff to advise Heggy at least one month in advance of intent to engage a visitor. She will then liaise with your visitor and guide them through the process. 

You can download relevant policies and forms from the Learning & Teaching support pages.
