Deposit of peer-reviewed journal articles into an open-access (OA) digital repository has a positive effect on their visibility, use, impact, and longevity. This workshop will provide CSU researchers with practical, step-by-step guidance on how to incorporate self-archiving into their research and publication workflow. Hands-on training to determine what a publisher will allow for deposit and instructions for depositing into the CSU Digital Repository will be included. Participants are encouraged to bring a citation for one of their recently published journal articles, a short list of journals in which they may pursue publication, and/or copies of their publisher’s agreements. Attendees will also learn about preservation services provided by the Libraries and the CSU Digital Repository.
Goals and Target Audience:
The target audience is faculty, graduate students, and other researchers who conduct original research and publish results as contributions to professional journal literature. Goals: 1.To increase awareness of the benefits of self-archiving research and scholarship in an open-access repository. 2. To dispel myths about open-access and digital repositories and demonstrate their compatibility with peer-review and copyright.
