SMU Researcher Club

Who are we?

The SMU Researcher Club (SMU RC) is a safe and welcoming platform for SMU researchers to grow in both professional and personal capacities. Our activities enable researchers to connect and engage with each other, as well as with the SMU Libraries and other Offices, thereby building a vibrant community for researchers. Our activities can be curated, co-created (with you and other Offices!) and even self-initiated (by you!).

If you have initiatives that you want to organise, email us at or chat us up via the club’s MS Teams Group!

Upcoming Events

Publication Series part 2: 
Negotiating authorship: How should you be credited for your work?

Date & Time: Tuesday, 30 April 2024, 2.30 PM to 4.00 PM
Venue: Learning Lab 1 @ Li Ka Shing Library, Level 5 

A physics paper with 5,154 authors has — as far as anyone knows — broken the record for the largest number of contributors to a single research article. While this is an extreme case, research nowadays is increasingly collaborative, and the list of authors for a published work gets longer. 

In this session, we explore what it takes to be an author, whether you should be listed as an author, and how to negotiate your authorship.  


  • Dr Andree HARTANTO, Assistant Professor of Psychology (Education), SOSS
  • Dr Jude KURNIAWAN, Postdoctoral Fellow in Sustainability and Governance, SOSS
  • Emma GRIMLEY, Research Assistant, CIS
  • Moderator: HENG Su Li, Research Associate, CIS

We try to make our activities regular! For this to be possible, we need volunteers as speakers/ICs or as coordinators!
