Research Support Programme

The University Library offers a regular programme of research support workshops aimed at higher degree research students and early career researchers. This programme has been developed in conjunction with the Graduate Research School and in response to feedback from UWA researchers about common challenges in the research lifecycle. All workshops will be delivered by experienced librarians, will be ‘hands-on’ and include time to ask questions.

Endnote classes

EndNote is a software tool that allows you to create and organise a database of your references, use the references in a Word document and automatically format your in-text citations and create a bibliography in your chosen reference style. EndNote is available on all UWA computers. All UWA staff and students can download the program onto their personal machines from the UWA Software Downloads website:

We offer regular EndNote classes aimed at postgraduate students. Academic staff can request an EndNote class at a convenient time (individual or in a small group). 

Individual consultations

Themes and topics we are able to discuss with you include:

  • Advanced skills in searching for literature: suggestions and familiarisation with search strategies and databases
  • Setting up and modifying research topic alerts, table of contents alerts and citation alerts in a variety of databases and journals
  • Managing your research data
  • Open Access publishing and meeting funding requirements
  • Maximizing your research impact
  • Bibliometrics, including finding citations of your work and calculating citation-based indices such as impact factors, and H-indexes
  • Setting up and maintaining your research profile(s).

Research Profiles

We recommend UWA researchers set up at least one research profile in order to:

  • distinguish yourself from similarly named authors
  • better track your citations
  • manage your publications list
  • help people to find your work and your contact information
