RCR Workshop: Demystifying the Scholarly Publishing Landscape
Wednesday, March 03, 2021 - 3:10pm to 4:30pm
The scholarly publishing landscape has grown exponentially in size, scope and complexity within the last decade. Since the number and type of publishing outlets have exploded, researchers now need to consider practical and ethical issues such as predatory journals, open access, preprints, publishing data and sponsor obligations when making publication decisions. Further, these issues may be compounded by interdisciplinary research collaborations. Presenters will provide an overview of the contemporary scholarly publishing landscape and the different components. They will also help researchers identify key questions to ask during different stages of the research process, highlight differences that may bear on interdisciplinary collaborative projects, and provide resources for more information and support. Presenters are: Dr. Patricia Condon, Eleta Exline, & Emily Poworoznek, UNH Library.
