We've created this new section to reflect the crucial role that evaluating our engagement work, and recording our activities, plays in evidencing the impact of our engagement practice.

Discovery Portal

Discovery is the University of Dundee's online collection of published research material. Search online for articles, books, conference papers, research theses and other material. It is easy to find new research material, and easy to deposit your own work to make it more widely available. Discovery is a valuable source of research material for students, researchers and the public.

We encourage you to record your public engagement activity through Discovery. All activity you record will populate your Discovery Profile.

Heather Doran, Erin Hardee and Jon Urch all use their Discovery profiles to showcase their engagement activity and related publications.

News - Discovery Portal profiles for academic-related staff

The Discovery Portal is both a valuable source of information for the public and a space to showcase public engagement, research and teaching activities. In 2021 we shared that staff on academic-related contracts have had their profiles switched on.

New Discovery account holders will have received an email inviting you to sign into Discovery Portal. For those who wish to make their profile public, we strongly recommend uploading at least a photograph and biography. Don't be shy!

If you have any queries, please email the Discovery Team.
