Author Carpentry: Open Access Hands-On Workshop (IFLA STL)
Join UC San Diego Scholarly Communications Librarian Allegra Swift and Annelise Sklar, the Assistant Director of the Scholarship Tools and Methods Program and Librarian for Political Science, Law & Society, International Studies, and International Government Information as they present "Identifying Reputable OA Journals," a 90-minute hands-on workshop. This workshop is the first in a two-part series featuring the Author Carpentry curriculum founded at Caltech.
Author Carpentry is a researcher-to-researcher training and outreach program in open authoring and publishing, scholarly identity and reputation, and research impact. Inspired by the Modern Scientific Authoring lesson proposed by Software Carpentry founder Greg Wilson, Author Carpentry was envisioned by founder Gail Peretsman-Clement to complement and extend the research pipelines covered in Software and Data Carpentry. Author Carpentry picks up the “last mile” of the research process: writing, reporting, review, dissemination and licensing, impact measurement, and establishing author identity and reputation. This section will focus on dissemination, deception, and diversity through a publishing literacy lens.
This workshop is sponsored by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Science & Technology Libraries Section.
