Open Publishing | Repro Workshop Series

Scholarly communication is steadily moving towards an open environment through open access publishing, self-archiving and increased transparency around the work that goes into scholarly research outputs. Learn about new forms of publishing such as micropublications, null and data results, registered research reports and preprints, and how tools like ORCID and social media can help shape and promote your online scholarly identity. 

Learning Objectives 

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Define the economics of scholarly publishing and the hurdles to publishing open access
  • Explain how emerging models of scholarly communication improve reproducibility
  • Deposit their published articles into an open repository
  • Identify scholarly communication tools to help manage their online presence
