Research Support

An overview of the support that is offered for researchers by the University of Essex Library.

Newcomers Research Week

Newcomers Research Week is organised once a year - in January - and offers early career researchers and new starters at Essex bite size sessions as introductions to the research support offered at the University of Essex. 

Newcomers Research Week has sessions that map to the research lifecycle; from ideas to grant writing to publication and sharing. Sessions are delivered by staff from Library and Cultural Services, Research and Enterprise Office, the UK Data Archive, CER, and others.

Research llifecyle: cycle runs though ideas, partners, proposal writing, the research process (which includes simulate, experiment, observe; manage the data; analyse data; share data), and finally publication.

We repeat many of the essential sessions each Research Week, but we also introduce or change some sessions based on the feedback and suggestions we get from participants throughout the Newcomers Research Weeks.


While our 2024 Newcomers Research Week has now past, the programme is available below for information.

Information about previous research weeks can be seen here.
