Welcome to your Research Services support pages

Welcome to the Leeds Beckett Library web pages for Research Services in the Library.

Here you will find information about resources, keeping up-to-date and managing information, and how the Library can support your research.

Your Research Services team can help you with:

  • Symplectic
  • Open Access (OA)
  • Your staff profile
  • Article Processing Charges (APCs)
  • Research Excellence Framework (REF)
  • ORCiD
  • Research Data Management (RDM)
  • Promoting and disseminating your research
  • Measuring impact

As well as these online support pages, videos and help guides, we offer a wide range of training and are happy to meet with you for a one-on-one chat, a more formal training presentation or workshop, or a group session with you and your colleagues. 

Your Academic Librarian can help you with:

Research Excellence Framework (REF) policy

From 1 April 2018 the REF 2021 Open Access policy will require outputs to be deposited as soon after the point of acceptance as possible, and no later than three months after this date.


For more information please see our REF pages and the HEFCE website. Please note that HEFCE was replaced by Research England at the end of March 2018. Any policy changes will be updated here at the earliest opportunity.  

HR Excellence in Research

Leeds Beckett University has received the European Commission HR Excellence in Research award, in recognition of its continued commitment to the career development and management of its research staff.
