BBS Centre for Research Services
The strategic goal of the BBS for scientific activity is “applied research for economic and social impact”. In order to achieve this goal, we have established the Research Fund and an application system financing new researches of our colleagues and teams. In addition, the BBS Centre for Research Services was established in 2017 with the aim of methodologically supporting the BBS community in the implementation of high-quality research.

BBS Research Services

At the BBS Centre for Research Services (BBS CRS), we offer support for high-level and applied research as well as research-based projects related to student talent promotion and teaching methodology. Social and economic impacts can be achieved by sharing their results widely. Our goal is to encourage as many BBS citizens as possible to conduct high-quality research, and to provide intellectual, research-methodological support for this. To improve research skills, we organize and hold workshops and trainings, provide personalized guidance, research methodological consultation to our colleagues and students, and work on the systematization and flow of information related to research.

Our offer:
  • consultation and advice
  • research methodology workshop
  • events and workshops
  • data collection and service
  • knowledge map

What do we offer?

Individual research methodology consultation

We provide individual, research methodological consultation for research instructors. As part of this, we review the research plan and tools, then think together, consider the issues and dilemmas that arise in connection with the research.

Support for lecturers pursuing PhD studies

We organise mainly methodological and to a lesser extent mental health group session for lecturers and teachers pursuing PhD studies. In the course of these, the participants can gain new knowledge related to their doctoral research, but we also consider it important to build relationships and create communities between colleagues in a similar situation. By recognizing common difficulties, exchanging experiences and ideas, colleagues also support each other in classes and beyond.

Research team mentoring

Launched in collaboration with the BBS Future of Higher Education Research Centre (FHERC), our pilot program aims to provide personalised assistance and support to newly formed research teams throughout the research process from topic definition to publication and use of results. We believe that outside help makes it easier to avoid typical mistakes and keep the team together even in times of overload or conflict. The mentoring process itself is also the subject of research to explore opportunities for its wider application.

Advising on the preparation of applications for the Research Fund

In order to ensure a successful application, we review the materials (application form, research plan, etc.) of researchers and research groups applying for financial support from the Research Fund before submitting them, taking into account the evaluation criteria, and propose amendments if necessary.

We recommend the following thematic research methodology workshops to the attention of departments and research groups, which we hold on request, at an agreed time and place. The workshops are led by researchers with experience in the field.

How do we survive our conference presentation?

In the workshop, we will address the elements needed for a good conference presentation. For example, we cover typical mistakes and ways to avoid them, criteria for good presentation and presentation.

How to collect literature and how to make a systematic literature review?

Through specific library/computer room EBSCO search exercises, we introduce participants to practical steps such as focusing the search, narrowing the results, saving the list of results, and the process and elements of preparing a literature review.

Guidelines for the maze of the research process: decision points, solution aspects, examples

With the participants, we review the main stages of the research process, identifying the most important decision points, presenting the most important alternatives. We explore “where/what” difficulties and branches the researcher may encounter, and what aspects they may take into account.

Tips and suggestions for making international publications

Our goal is to make participants more aware of international publishing. We deal with the selection of appropriate journals and the purposeful development of the content and form of the writings.

Nvivo10 workshop for beginners and advanced

Our workshop introduces participants to the use of NVivo10, one of the most common text analysis and processing software programs, from the first steps through the coding of texts to the analysis of data.

SPSS course for beginners and advanced

Workshops with different focus and depth can be linked to the SPSS software. It is possible for participants to learn the basics of data management, processing, and analysis through a specific research process, along with details of the required SPSS procedures and relevant data analysis techniques. But it is also possible to hold advanced courses that focus on the special analytical procedures of the program, even exploring the mathematical background.

Deepenig research with qualitative (metaphor/interview/drawing) methods

We get to know and test qualitative data collection and analysis procedures. We present the application features and pitfalls of metaphor, interview, concept map, image drawing and analysis. We discuss the possibilities of combining data obtained from different sources with different methods.

The BBS Workshop series organised by the CRS, which is held once or twice a year, also serves the realization of the scientific strategic goals of our university. The BBS Workshop makes it possible to share the results of university-based research with the wider professional community, both within and outside the university. We consider it important that the events activate and involve the audience, in order to inspire the researchers themselves to continue their work and to discover new directions.

Our task is to collect data related to the research activities of the university, to systematise them according to different aspects and to prepare reports on the research activities of BBS, and to fulfil the obligation to provide data. We purposefully look for useful information for researchers - about conferences, publication opportunities, webinars - to share with the groups involved (Research Society, lecturers conducting their PhD studies).

The Knowledge Map is an up-to-date online research database created to introduce BBS’s colourful, scientific and research activities and achievements both inside and outside the university. The Knowledge Map allows you to build relationships by searching by topic and name.
