Research activities in summer

One of the problems of LIS academic staff in Iran and maybe in some other developing countries is that they are too much engaged in teaching and when it comes to research activities, one of their excuses is not having enough time. Summer is an almost semi-active or inactive period in respect of teaching in all universities as undergraduate students are in their vacations. Therefore it could be a good opportunity for research students and those staff who are interested or engaged in research to take advantage of. June and July in some universities in UK is seminar season. Almost every week one lecturer, researcher or research student voluntarily makes a presentation about his/her ongoing research. Many workshops and conferences take place in summer. There are some summer schools for interested people particularly postgraduate students. See for instance this one about data management.
