What you need to know in scholarly publishing: Open Access and Author Rights
Wednesday, Nov.19, 12:00-1:00
Joseph Henry Room, 102 Jadwin Hall
Speaker: Kevin Smith, Director of Copyright and Scholarly Communication, Duke University
This workshop is primarily aimed at graduate students and young scholars who are already or will soon be publishing their research, but is open to all students and faculty seeking a better understanding of the many publishing options and legal rights now available.
Open Access platforms and journals are emerging as exciting new avenues for disseminating scholarly works, yet here too scholars face many decisions regarding how best to share their work while still protecting their intellectual property. Kevin will address open access and how it can impact the research and writing of academic authors. Also covered will be strategies for how authors can retain the creative rights to their work and still publish in the most important journals of their disciplines.
Please also feel free to share this event with any colleagues who might be interested. Thank you!
