This important campus-wide event showcases undergraduate, graduate and professional student research covering a broad range of scholarship: Art/Design/Humanities; Business/Computer Science/Mathematics; Engineering/Physical Sciences; Life Sciences; and Social Sciences. In addition to awards in the above categories, awards will be given to the top student research projects that best reflect the principles of sustainability and those that use women, sex, and/or gender as the central focus of their study or which have a primary focus on understanding sex or gender differences related to the topic under study.

Registration for the forum will open in January. Further details on the event and specific instructions for participation are provided on the SRF website. http://www.research.uic.edu/srf

In order to help you prepare, the UIC Library, the Office of Undergraduate Research, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research are sponsoring a series of workshops designed to help students with their research. Information is below or available at the workshops page.

 

Student Research Forum Library Workshop Series

Getting Started with Your Research
If you plan to present at the Student Research Forum or elsewhere in the Spring, now is the time to get started with your research.  In this workshop librarians will work with any and all students to:

  • Develop Your Topic: Is your topic too broad or too narrow?  Librarians will help you address this and other issues that can crop up as you develop a research topic.
  • Find Resources:  What are the best resources in your field?  How should you use them?  What are effective strategies for figuring out which articles you should read?
  • Organize What You Find:  There are tools that help you save and organize the materials you find online.  They can save you a lot of time and even save you from accidental plagiarism.  Librarians will briefly introduce you to these tools.

Dates and times:
October 8 from 1-2 pm
October 9 from 2-3 pm
October 27 from 3-4 pm

Location:
The IDEA Commons Classroom, Daley Library, First Floor, Room 1-010

Registration: http://research.uic.edu/node/3775

 

How To Read and Use Scholarly Journal Articles

If you have ever read a journal article, the core expression of scholarship in a wide variety of fields, you may have felt that reading and understanding journal articles is hard.  You aren’t the only one.  This workshop is meant to provide you with some advice and methods for breaking a journal article into manageable pieces and extracting the key information from it for your research. Open to students from all fields and all disciplines!

Dates and times:
October 28     2-3 pm
October 29     1-2 pm

Location:
The IDEA Commons Classroom, Daley Library, First Floor, Room 1-010
