Merry Christmas

Christmas holidays are almost here, so this is the last post for the year.
Things to look forward to in the New Year are:
  • revamped subject guide - cosmetic changes mostly
  • WestlawNZ - and the phasing out of the Brookers platform
  • more 'how to' guides and mindmaps to help your immediate research needs
Plus a few surprises planned for later, much later in 2014.

Happy holidays.
See you next year .
Best wishes, the Law Librarian.

HelpMePublish mobile app launched

HelpMePublish is a 'crowdsourced' database listing over 5300 academic jouranls in 13 subject areas, and was created by the University of Otago.
The database displays live data as it is contributed to by journal editors (including acceptance rates and refereeing policies) and academic via the app's built in journal rating programme.

They've built it but if HelpMePublish is to be a valuable resource for the research community they need you to contribute your experience as a publishing researcher.

For more information about the HelpMePublish project go to helpmepublish.org.

To download the HMP app go to our App Store page.
