Learn how UK-based research group, Architecture_MPS promotes its journal articles, conferences and online resources by exposing it’s relationships with other research, exhibitions, and imagery. As part of our engagement with scholarly communication AMPS provides current listings supported by additional materials relevant to both academics and discipline information professionals. Since 2014, we have used Pinterest for curating collections of images and articles on topics related to our published journal articles. The boards function as a resource guide or reference to current books, films, exhibits, conferences, lectures and competitions related to the AMPS remit.
