Images on RADAR Homepage

This month we are pleased to announce the continued uploading of outputs to RADAR, especially those that contain documents and images to help showcase and demonstrate your research at GSA further. We’d like to remind contributors to RADAR that when you upload images alongside your outputs, these can be viewed on the RADAR homepage, as illustrated. This helps to promote your research further, increasing its reach to the community. So why not try and incorporate an image with the next output you upload, if it is feasible to do so.

Keep up the good work! We look forward to showing more lovely images on the RADAR page!
