The next RCUK Researchfish Submission Period will be taking place between 5th February and 15th March 2018 and ESRC-funded students are asked to note that they will be receiving a number of emails from RCUK on the subject.
There will be 3 different emails, although in most cases, students will receive only one (depending on the stage they are at in their studentship funding). The target audience and the general content for each email are:
1. Students new to Researchfish – this will go out to students who have recently had their RCUK funded award added to Researchfish; the vast majority of which will now be in their 3rd year of funding. The email will inform them about their awards being added and will contain links to general guidance about using Researchfish.
2. Students in their final year of funding – this will go out to students who have finished their RCUK funding since the last Submission Period or are due to finish it before the next one begins. As well as generally letting them know about the next Submission Period, we also plan to ask students if they would be willing to provide us with a non-institutional email address so that RCUK can continue to contact them about making Researchfish submissions for the next few years.
3. Any other RCUK funded student on Researchfish – this will go out to any RCUK funded student whose award is on Researchfish which does not fall under the first two catergories. This email will let them know about the next Submission Period.
