Where are university websites hiding all their research?

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

Are UK universities doing enough to make research accessible to students, funders and the public? Claire Shaw reports.

Glossy bulletins and public lecture leaflets still land on our desk, but where is this research information to be found online? University webpages that do publicise their institution’s latest research are often uninviting or unimaginative in format, listing titles of research papers that have not been updated for months, or even years in some instances. Some universities fail to provide access to online information about their research at all.

Are universities investing the necessary time, money and energy in effective communication of their research? Is this information accessible through the university’s internal systems, if not published in the public domain? And for research that is publicly funded, do universities have a moral obligation to promote this work through accessible means to show its worth and benefit to society?
