Briefing 5: Research Tools and Techniques 2015

This year's briefing will take place on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th October.

For this year, the notes have been migrated from Pearltrees for as a shared OneNote notebook. I've done this primarily because Swansea University now has a site licence for Office 365 and so it's readily available for use by staff and students but also because I wanted to try using OneNote for a real purpose and to explore some of its sharing features.

Students of EG-353 and SR-311 may wish to consider the use of OneNote as an online digital logbook.

Welcome to the new "Research Tools and Techniques" blog. I created this as a target for link postings from a Diigo group but I and one or two selected authors may from time-to-time post editorial about Research Techniques and Tools, particularly as it applies to students in Engineering and Sports Science at Swansea University.

The content may have more general interest and your comments are welcome.
