Research and PhD Support


We are always happy to meet with you for a one-on-one, informal introduction to Symplectic, our Repository or to discuss Open Access and the REF.

These sessions can be tailored to meet your needs and we can also provide group training, or you can book onto one of our sessions through iTrent.
