Finding, managing and publishing scientific literature during your PhD

The Library of Science and IMM staff members have constructed a course regarding searching, finding, managing, reusing and publishing scientific literature. The topics in this course are focused on research in the natural sciences, and adapted to research done in the IMM. Besides the basics, we also address Open Access and Research Data Management, since these topics are becoming more and more important.
