Self-Archiving Workshop

Friday, October 20, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Event Description: 

Two primary ways exist to make your work Open Access: publish in an Open Access outlet or self-archive your work. This workshop will focus on self-archiving, a practice that allows you to publish in your favorite journals and with your favorite publishers and still make your work openly available through depositing copies in repositories. 

How do you get more citations, reach a broader audience, and ensure long-term preservation of your work? Learn about the best practices for self-archiving: your rights as an author, locations to share your work, and how to maximize the benefits to you and the research community. Learn the considerations for sharing preprints and postprints, and the different uses for a website, institutional repository, and commercial sharing sites like and ResearchGate.
