Research and Learning Services: Scholarly Communication

Introduction to Scholarly Communication

Scholarly Communication refers to the complex system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. This includes:

  1. Understanding open access policies related to how your federally funded research data is accessed and shared based on granting agency guidelines
  2. Utilizing open educational resources in the classroom
  3. Publishing these open textbooks via library and institutional presses

  5. The Association for College and Research Libraries provides a comprehensive toolkit surrounding all of these topics: http://acrl.libguides.com/scholcomm/toolkit
