Welcome to the Research Culture Uncovered podcast, where in every episode we explore what is research culture and what should it be. You'll hear thoughts and opinions from a range of contributors to help you change research culture into what you want it to be.Ged:
Hi, and welcome to the Research Culture Uncovered podcast.
I'm Ged Hall, Academic Development Consultant for Research Impact at the University of Leeds. If you're a regular listener, you know we normally release a podcast episode every Wednesday at 12 noon UK time. You may also know that there is a long running dispute about pay and conditions in the UK and earlier in the year, we took a collective decision to suspend our publication of episodes whenever they fell on a day when strike action was occurring.
Unfortunately, due to certain local events at the University of Leeds, the local branch of the union has entered into a period of indefinite strike. We therefore won't be releasing any episodes until this ends, which we obviously hope will be very soon. When we do restart, we will be publishing episodes in season five, which is looking at the effects of research impact on research culture and the actions people are taking to ensure those effects are positive.
We also want to hear about how you are dealing with this and what your hopes are for the future of research impact culture. This is the subject for the final episode of the season, and we'll keep the collection process open until the season has launched. Check out the show notes for how to get involved and please do we really want to hear from you.
Finally, don't forget to check out all the episodes we have already published. Ruth Winden's season, which was just finished, was on research careers and as eight episodes. Nick Shepherd's season was on open research and has seven episodes, and Tony Bromley's season was on research talent and that has 12 episodes.
There is also our first season where you got to meet all of us, Ruth, Nick, Tony, Emma, whose season will follow mine and myself. Thanks for bearing with us and I hope to be with you soon.Intro:
