IAEM Presents: A Professional Development Workshop
Publishing Toolkit for Graduate Students: Authors Rights and Open Access
Do you really want to give awayyour copyright?
Signing an agreement with a journal publisher often involves signing away your copyright. Do you want to limit access to your work? Or, would you rather keep the right to reuse your charts, illustration, and creative work; share your work with your students and colleagues; and make your work widely known to large audience of your peers around the world? This workshop will talk about open access and what it means for your research and writing. It will also cover how you can retain your rights and still publish in the most important journals in your field. You will leave with a small toolkit of resources to help you navigate the somewhat unfamiliar world of publishing and open access requirements you must now address.
