New Research4Life Training Material Portal

The new Research4Life training portal has been launched ( see website ). The goal of this resource is to centrally locate the inter-discipline training material and other training related information from all four Research4Life programmes-HINARI, AGORA, OARE and ARDI. The content of the portal is aimed at librarians, information specialists, scientists, researchers and students. It is divided into six sections.

. About Research4Life programs-overview of the R4L programs and the similarities and differences.

. Authorship Skills- a set of modules to develop authorship skills including how to read and write a scientific paper, copyright and plagiarism, strategies for effective writing and a web bibliography of useful resources.

. Reference Management Tools software- how to use modules on Mendeley, Zotero and EndNoteWeb.

. Program Specific Training- links to individual training pages of the programs.

. Courses and Workshops- up to date information on training options.

. Other resources-additional material about marketing and managing change strategies for Research4Life and information literacy.

All the training material can be downloaded for free and distributed/ used for training within your institution. Please view the portal, learn about the training related activities and download/ use the available resources. If you have any questions or suggestions for other training material , contact
