 ORCID   ORCID™ gives researchers and authors a single unique ID which works across the research landscape. Follow the link for more information from the University of York about registering for an ORCiD. 


Create your own libraries and automate your referencing. Hull and York guides are available on the HYMS Information Skills page.


Protect your copyright, and comply with legislation and licences.

Guidance is available from both Hull and York on protecting and observing copyright.

Publication Impact

Bibliometrics provides a quantitative analysis of the influence of research. It looks at the citation counts for articles to see how they have impacted on the research landscape and with the introduction of altmetrics looks at how the influence of the article can be measured. It stands alongside qualitative measures of excellence such as peer review. Information and links are available via Hull and York.

Online and workshop course details are available at:



Workshops are available at Hull and York to support PGRs.

The CRD, based in York, also run training courses for researchers (cost associated).

Research Data Management

The Universities of York and Hull and most funders require you to manage and share your data. Information on creating a DMP (Data Management Plan), obtaining DOIs as well as links to training are available from Hull and York.

Open Access Publishing

Using the Institutional Repositories

To be REF compliant, researchers at both universities need to submit all university research outputs published in journals or conference papers with an ISSN for deposit in the University's digital repository within 3 months of acceptance by a publisher.

Hull academic and research staff should deposit copies of their research output through HYDRA.

York academic and research staff should deposit copies of their research output through PURE , after which the output will automatically be deposited to the White Rose Research Online repository.

Information on Open Access, including funding for Gold OA, is available via: Hull and York.

Being a networked researcher

Information about using online tools in the research environment - to keep up with your research area, to collaborate with others, and to disseminate your findings is available via Hull and York.

Workshops are also available via Hull and York.
