Conference Track: Scholarly Communication & Library Publishing

*More information and registration online at* http://www.

This workshop will provide attendees, no matter their role in their own
institution, with the knowledge, vocabulary, and basic skills needed to
communicate intelligently with other stakeholders in the fast-changing
scholarly communication landscape. Using foundational readings from Peter
Suber and other sample materials, we will explore several key scholarly
communication topics, including: the economics of commercial and open
access publishing; open access publishing models; common misconceptions
about open access and how to address them; predatory publishing; copyright,
author rights and legislation; article-level- and alt- metrics, and open
educational resources. Presenters will structure the workshop with a
combination of interactive activities and traditional presentations. Time
will also be provided throughout the workshop for attendees to ask
questions brought from their own experiences and institutions for group
discussion and feedback.

Following this session, participants will:

   - have a basic understanding of the current scholarly communication
   landscape, including the economics of publishing, open access funding
   models, predatory publishing, author rights, article-level metrics, and
   open educational resources.
   - be able to assist faculty in identifying their rights as authors and
   address misconceptions about open access publishing.
   - be able to evaluate and identify potentially predatory publishers.
   - be able to identify alternative measures of scholarship impact and
   understand their benefits and limitations.
