The Research Hive is a space dedicated to researchers in the University of Sussex Library. SAGE Publications have made a gift to support the Research Hive and the Library’s innovative work in engaging with the research community at Sussex. Each year three doctoral researchers are appointed as Research Hive Scholars to develop a programme of support activities and events for researchers.
