PILOT has been developed to assist staff and research students with your research.

PILOT aims to provide you with an overview about searching for information, retrieval, storage and publishing, and also focuses on the rapidly changing world of sharing information through scholarly communication.

In addition to modules on sources of specialist information appropriate to your areas of research, aspects of the publication process are covered, including open access publishing and the fast developing world of subject and institutional repositories. Other forms of scholarly communication are introduced in a section on new technologies, such as blogs, wikis and podcasts.

The unit on acquiring and managing information provides information on bibliographic software, copyright, referencing and plagiarism. You need to know about plagiarism not only from your work in research, but in relation to teaching, and the guidance you give to students. The module will introduce some tools that are available to help you in this area.

You can contact Rachel Johnson r.johnson@worc.ac.uk or Janet Davidson j.davidson@worc.ac.uk by email, or during office hours by telephone 01905 542093 or 01905 855535.
