The UNT Libraries Scholarly Communication Office offers classroom visits, faculty or department presentations, workshops and sponsored events on a variety of topics related to scholarly communication, including:
- Scholarly Writing
- Academic publishing
- Editing & peer review
- Copyright & authors' rights
- Managing research data and funding agency requirements
- Open Access, Open Education Resources, and Open Textbooks
- Intellectual freedom & censorship
We also maintain a number of online resources on these topics, and will be happy to set up an appointment with any of our librarians to discuss your publishing projects or other questions you might have about the scholarly communication environment.
We can schedule a brief (15-20 min.) overview of our resources and services, or a longer discussion of any of the topics above that might be of interest to particular faculty, students, or staff.
We also offer a "Don't Cancel That Class" workshop, "Introduction to Scholarly Communication," through the UNT Learning Center for faculty who would like to schedule one while they're away at a conference or other event.
These workshops and class visits are ideally suited to graduate classes or upper-level undergraduate classes with a significant research or publication component (such as a thesis or conference presentation).
We're also happy to do presentations or workshops for faculty or departments that might be interested in learning about our services or discussing particular issues in scholarly communication such as publication opportunities, editing & peer review practices, author rights, or data management.
If you would like to schedule a visit from one of our librarians, please contact: John Martin, Scholarly Communication Librarian, email@example.com
Scholarly Communication Workshops:
The UNT Libraries Scholarly Communication Office and the UNT Digital Library host regular workshops designed to introduce researchers to some of the central issues in scholarly communication and to the services that the Libraries provide.
These workshops are open to all UNT faculty, students, and staff who want to learn more about scholarly publishing, copyright, open access repositories, and other topics related to transformations in scholarly communication.
Scheduled Workshops for Spring 2018
"Why Can't Scholarship Be Free?", 10-11. a.m., Willis Library, Room 340
In this workshop, we’ll look at the Open Access movement and discuss the potential of free, open, re-usable scholarship that’s available to anyone online. We’ll also talk about publication opportunities and how to utilize Open Access venues to help your scholarly work reach a wider audience and have a greater impact.
If you have questions, please contact John Martin, Scholarly Communication Librarian, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
