Issues in Scholarly Publishing: Scholarly Publishing is increasingly evolving. Navigating these shifts can be overwhelming. Researchers are being asked to consider open access. Bad faith publishers and vanity presses are preying on folks under pressure to publish. Funding bodies are requiring more public access to publications and research data. And, on top of it all, researchers have more ways to connect with their communities of practice than ever before. There are an overwhelming amount of ways to share your work. This session addresses some of these trends in publishing, intellectual property, and scholarly profiles.
Instructors: Mike Nason [RSVP]
