All costs incurred in advertising post funded by research accounts are to be met by the research fund rather that UCD HR.
Watching for hidden costs
If you are proceeding to advertise it is important to note that enquiries to publications seeking projected costs may themselves incur a charge as copy has to be prepared in order to estimate cost of placing the advertisement. Press and journal listings are significantly more expensive than web-sites
Is there a limit to the amount of ad’s I can request?
- The cost of advertising will generally dictate the amount of advertising which takes place. All costs are borne by the research account.
- UCD HR Resourcing Team will facilitate the advertising or your post on any number of locations i.e. press/journals and/or web-sites, having first confirmed your willingness to cover the estimated costs.
