UVic Libraries is offering a *** NEW *** Pathways to Scholarship Workshop Series. It was created to provide institutional and mentoring support to promote the academic success of our scholars (particularly, but not exclusively, students, early career faculty, and post-docs).
Choosing your journal
Think of your journal selection as finding the right community in which to start a conversation about your research. In this session you will learn how to evaluate journals for scope, access, and impact to identify the most appropriate venue to share your scholarship.
Date and Time: January 22, 2020 between noon and 1:00 p.m.
Publishing in high-quality, peer-reviewed journals remains a prime goal for academics because it is tied to promotion, tenure, and is important for your evaluation. In this session you’ll learn about the characteristics of predatory publishers and through a hands-on activity, you’ll learn how to spot predatory journals.
Date and Time: February 5, 2020 between noon and 1:00 p.m.
Navigating your Publishing Agreement
Copyright balances the authors rights to their work and the users right to use the work for the purposes of education, research, private study, criticism, review, parody, and satire. In the workshop you will learn, through hands-on activities, about the important aspects of a publication agreement and strategies for protecting your intellectual property and education re-use rights.
Date and Time: February 26, 2020 between noon and 1:00 p.m.
Introduction to Data Management Plans
Aimed at grad student and faculty researchers, this workshop reviews the key components of a data management plan and offers guidance on how to improve the management of your research data for long-term use and preservation. In this hands-on session, participants will have the opportunity to create their own data management plan using the online DMP Assistant platform.
Register: February 28, 2020 between noon and 1:30 p.m.
Register: April 2, 2020 between noon and 1:30 p.m.
