Linear regression (4) - 12:00pm

Do you ever wonder about modeling outcome variables in your research? Come and learn how it is done with SPSS. Linear regression is an approach used for modeling the relationship between an independent variable "Y" and one or more explanatory variables denoted as "X". The case of one explanatory variable is named "simple linear regression", and for more than one explanatory variable, the process is called "multiple linear regression". In our 2 hour workshop, we will take you through a tour of how these variables can be used in SPSS, what are the interpretations, and how can you build a model for your project. Start with this workshop and continue on through the logistic regression analysis workshop.


Citation Management Using Mendeley - 2:30pm

If you need to manage large numbers of references and citations as part of your research, teaching or administrative work, citation management tools are for you. These tools provide a simple way to store, organize and retrieve your citations in an effective manner, and can also help you in formatting in-text citations and bibliographies in your work.

This hands-on workshop introduces briefly the main concepts of citation management and gives detailed instruction for installing and using Mendeley, one of the most popular citation management tools.


Are you new to Mendeley entirely, or do you have advanced-user questions? Email research.commons@ubc.ca to set up a one-on-one appointment with one of our citation management experts.
