Aims and Purposes

As agreed in the YHIoT Research CPD Meeting, we are currently preparing an internal journal to catalogue research and scholarly activities that have taken place under the IoT banner or at associated substitute organisations. This will be presented in an open format, as an open access PDF publication of abstracts with links to a folder containing the associated content. While publishing any progress made in research projects, the main emphasis is placed on sharing best practices, ideas for further research and the outcomes of staff and student research, rather than strict academic rigour. The journal will be a multimedia collection and accept content in any format (i.e., written papers, technical notes, videos, presentations etc.). The final submission should not exceed 5,000 words.

What is to be submitted?

We are currently seeking content for the second edition of the journal. Do you have something that you would like to submit? For the second edition we have decided to set a broad remit for content: "Any research, ideas or technical notes that fall within the remit of the IoT or partner institutions"

In future years we may tighten this to focus on specific areas of the IoT work. However, for this edition we would like to promote sharing best practice and collegiate working across all areas of the IOT. We recommend 2-3 pages for a written piece or a minimum of 10 minutes for a video.
