Category:
Research
Date:
2011
Start Time:
8:00 AM
Session Length:
2 Hours, 50 Minutes
Room:
213-15 LSC
Description:
With sponsored programs come administrative responsibilities. Many times people unaware of sponsored programs are not prepared to accept these responsibilities only due to lack of planning. Therefore, it is important to be able to recognize a potential sponsored program before any proposal is submitted. This allows for proper and complete planning and an assurance that appropriate resources are available for the work. This session will introduce the participant to sponsored programs not to make them an expert but to allow them to hear terms and rules that promote those proper questions early in the proposal process. We will discuss general rules associated funding and other administrative requirements. We will also discuss CSU's implementation of those rules. The program will be 'peppered' with case studies to give concrete examples.
Goals and Target Audience:
This is an introductory session. It is directed toward those who have little or no experience with sponsored programs or deal with only a few sponsored programs during their work-year. The participants will be able to recognize a sponsored program, understand the difference between a grant or contract and recognize common rules associated with sponsored programs.

Scientific literature has its own vocabulary and tools for effective searching.

In this session we will provide information and hands-on examples of how to find an article from a scientific citation such as: Miranda R and Stone E 1993 Phys. Lett. A 178 105 or DOI: 10.1098/rstb.2008.0297. Attendees will learn strategies for selecting the appropriate databases in a given subject/topic area and time-saving tips for searching multiple databases at one time. We will also highlight online science encyclopedias and how they can provide the non-scientist with a vocabulary for searching the scientific literature.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals and targeted audience: The target audience is any non-scientist who needs to find scientific research information. The session goals are to provide information and time-saving strategies for locating scientific information in encyclopedias, databases, and from scientific journal citations.
