We can assist you to:

- Keep up with what is being published in your subject
- Format your thesis according to UoW regulations
- Understand your copyright obligations and seek permissions

- Identify appropriate journals to publish in within your subject area
- Create and market your researcher profiles on various platforms, such as ORCID, Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar
Please contact us to arrange a suitable meeting time with you. Consultations can be conducted face to face, via video conferencing (e.g. Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts) or over the phone.
On request from lecturers or student groups, we also offer hands-on tutorials covering course-specific resources and databases.
