How do we get access to educational research?

At the Research Leads conference on 13th December (see www.workingoutwhatworks.com) teachers raised the issues of their limited access to research, unless they are enrolled on expensive Masters courses.  The other problem is that there is so much research, busy teachers do not have time to sift through it all to find what is useful for their needs.
Here are some links for accessing research for free, and finding topics of interest to you:
Institute of Effective Education, York  York University curates and shares interesting education research.

SUPER Network , Cambridge University, blogs regularly about interesting education research and this blog post points to how to find more.
 
DfE research DfE regularly publishes educational research, worth a read.
Research in Teacher Education from the University of East London
 
Access to Research Initiative Read a huge range of research for free at your local library.
Finally, if you are a member of GHS staff we can support you with access to the Institute of Education library.  If you want to read particular articles or books or want to pursue areas of interest, see Peter Mather or Judith Enright for details.
