When the upload is complete, you will be notified on the screen that your full text is under review by the BURO team. Once approved by the BURO team of its legality, the link to the full text in BURO will be created and the link will also appear on your Staff Profile Page.

Introducing Rebecca Johnson: PQSW Research Assistant

FullSizeRenderI have joined Bournemouth University as a Research Assistant for the National Centre of Post-Qualifying Social Work and Professional Practice. The Centre is very dynamic and has a wide range of interesting projects and professional development programmes to engage with. I am looking forward to becoming involved with research into financial scamming and mass marketing fraud.

I founded my research background with a Human and Physical Geography degree in which I was able to work with NASA’s Environment and Energy team on research into the economic and environmental impact of launching the space shuttle. I have previously worked in both the public and private sectors in public consultation and communication roles. Most recently I worked with Exeter International Airport as an Air Traffic Control Assistant, an intense role which has left me with a personal interest in aircraft; particularly those that are fast and red.

Outside of work I like to travel, principally North America, and keep active with running and dance. I have an interest in World War 2 history and take part in living history events in the UK and in France. After my second week I am enjoying life as a member of the University and am keen to embrace all that it offers.

Updating your Staff Profile Pages? Here’s a handy tip!

StaffProfilePages

 

 

For starters, to change information on your Staff Profile Pages, you will need to log onto your BRIAN account to do so.

Any information added or amended on your BRIAN account usually requires an overnight automated refresh for it to appear on your Staff Profile Pages the next day.

Here’s the tip – if you want to see the changes made straight away, there is a button on your Staff Profile Page which you can click to prompt the refresh to take place instantaneously.

Scroll to the bottom of your Staff Profile Page and you will see this in the left hand corner –

refreshIt’s very discreet but it’s there.

Click on the ‘Refresh now’ button and it will refresh your page and you can see the changes made instantly.

What you need to know if you are updating your Staff Profile Pages

In order to update your Staff Profile Pages, you will need to update information on your BRIAN account.

By keeping up-to-date information of your publications including journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, reports, etc also means that all publication information on your external facing Staff Profile Pages are kept up to date.

The same applies to other types of information including grant and award information, professional activities which include your qualifications, teaching profile, public engagement and outreach activities, memberships, external responsibilities, and many more.

One thing worth noting – The “Overview” page under the ‘Profile’ tab on BRIAN is the latest feature introduced in the latest BRIAN upgrade. All information populated on this “Overview” page WILL NOT be extracted across to your Staff Profile Pages to avoid duplication with similar type information under ‘My Professional Activities’. If you wish to update your academic profile, you will find all relevant items under ‘My Professional Activities’
