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. 


Lauren B. Collister

Scholarly Communications Librarian
University of Pittsburgh

During the process of obtaining her Ph.D. in Sociolinguistics, Lauren realized that there was a lot more to academic work than doing research and publishing it. She became an advocate for Open Scholarship as an early career researcher, and turned the focus of her career to helping her fellow scholars navigate the life cycle of scholarship. In her position as Scholarly Communications Librarian at the University of Pittsburgh, Lauren engages directly with faculty, staff, and students to help them manage and track their scholarly output. She also serves as a voice for scholarly communication with the Linguistic Society of America, the Association of Internet Researchers, the OpenCon Community for Early Career Researchers, and the Association of College and Research Libraries.
