Last week Vitae continued its mission of supporting the development of researchers by publishing The Informed Researcher. This booklet maps the Researcher Development Framework onto a set of practical steps that all researchers can take to ensure that they are making the most of the information they gather, analyse, evaluate and disseminate. Devised by researchers and librarians expert in information literacy, it starts with the importance of research questions and ends with an examination of publishing models and measuring impact. Considering that the authors have written it so that it is relevant to researchers across disciplines, it’s very detailed, and prompts you to audit your own information skills.
