The first screenshot of the eBU interface has been exclusively leaked to the BU Research Blog, and is expected to go viral across the BU community over the next week.
eBU will provide both an internal and external forum for the development of research papers by undergraduate to Professor around the eight BU research themes:
– Creative & Digital Economies
– Culture & Society
– Entrepreneurship & Economic Growth
– Environmental Change & Biodiversity
– Green Economy & Sustainability
– Health, Wellbeing & Ageing
– Leisure & Recreation
– Technology & Design
Submissions will be open to immediate publication (in a safe internal environment) and open peer review by 2 appropriate BU academics. Authors will be encouraged to act upon these reviews by either reworking papers for submission to an external journal or by opting for publication on the external eBU site.
For BU academics this is a great opportunity to get critical appraisal on your research papers or ideas from colleagues. For academics it also an opportunity to encourage the submission of high quality student output, and possibly to facilitate the co-creation and co-production of publishable material to an external journal or to publish externally with eBU. For students, this is a fantastic opportunity to turn high quality essays or dissertations into scholarly outputs, which will be attractive to employers across many sectors and industries.
