Eventbrite - Faculty Workshop: How to Submit to Academic Works


Workshop Description:

The Graduate Center recently launched Academic Works, an open access institutional repository that is the ideal way for faculty to make articles, book chapters, data, etc. available to their research community and the broader public.  It’s also the perfect place to satisfy grant funders’ open access requirements!

You might wonder, “Are researchers allowed to make their scholarly journal articles freely available online?” Very often, the answer is yes: a majority of journal publishers allow self-archiving of this kind!  (To check the policy of a specific publisher or journal, go to http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/.)

This workshop will introduce faculty to Academic Works, present the many compelling reasons to post works there, and provide step-by-step instructions for uploading works.

(Graduate students, we apologize, but we’re not ready for you quite yet.  We’re doing a phased launch, and the repository is currently only ready to accept faculty self-submissions.  But it will be open to student self-submissions in the near future!)

Led by Jill Cirasella, Associate Librarian for Public Services and Scholarly Communication.

Can’t make it? Contact Jill at jcirasella@gc.cuny.edu for a one-on-one instruction to Academic Works.
