Graduate Students: Register for Upcoming Workshops to Prepare for Future Publishing
Copyright issues? Research Impact? What should you know as you plan for your publishing future? Kelvin Smith Library and the School of Graduate Studies are offering a series of workshops open to CWRU graduate students to help prepare for future publishing.
Plan for your publishing future and register now! Registration is limited to 100.
Advanced Copyright Workshop for Graduate Students
Friday, February 28 from 12:30-1:45 p.m. in Clapp Hall, Room 108
Copyright issues surround you in graduate school — you'll use copyrighted materials as you write and publish your own works. Before you complete your dissertation, you may publish articles, work as an intern, be asked to sign rights documents, or comply with new federal requirements.
Do you own your dissertation? Do you know what your rights are now–and after graduation? We've created a February 28th workshop just for you that covers the path to publishing your dissertation, explains all those acronyms (ETD, CC, OA, UMI, SHERPA), and prepares you for future publishing with things like the Author Addendum journal agreement, securing your future rights, legal exemptions, avoiding risk...and much more.
Research Impact: the (un) reality of measuring scholars
Friday, March 7 from 12:30-1:45 p.m. in Clapp Hall, Room 108

This session offers an overview of the traditional and emerging tools for measuring research impact and the debates around the issue. Learn about citation analysis, h-index, journal impact factors, and altmetrics. This session will also offer suggestions on how to maximize your research impact.
