Using Open Access Publishing to Extend the Reach of Your Research

The Teaching Support Centre presents:

Using Open Access Publishing to Extend the Reach of Your Research

 Thursday, March 2, 2017
1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Weldon Library, Room 121

How can you get the widest audience for your research? How can you increase the impact of your work? Open access (OA) publishing options make it possible for anyone to freely access the results of your research, and studies have shown that OA results in more readers and more citations. In this session, you’ll learn more about how OA benefits authors and how you can make your research more widely available. Topics will include identifying open access journals, maintaining author rights, using Western Libraries’ repository Scholarship@Western to make research openly available, and how to meet funding agency requirements for open access. The session will also include time for questions and discussion.
