Your Copyright: Increase the Impact of Your Scholarship

Date: 02/28/2017

Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Center for Scholarly Communication


Many publishers create significant barriers for authors who want to reuse or share their work, and for access to that work by others. Negotiating changes to standard publisher agreements can help authors avoid these obstacles, thus increasing options for authors as well as readership, citation, and impact of the work itself. Openly available articles have been shown to be more heavily cited.

In this session researchers and authors will:

  • learn about the advantages of retaining your copyright
  • review tools, techniques, and sites (i.e., the Directory of Open Access Journals) for discovering and evaluating high-quality open access peer reviewed journals
  • explore the new Stony Brook University Libraries Academic Commons


Bookings are closed for this event.
