Thanks to your feedback on a recent scholarly communication survey, the UCSF Library is launching several services to promote equity in publishing and open science. Our goal is to create learning opportunities and facilitate connections between journal editors, early career faculty and researchers, and those underrepresented in medicine, to create a more open and equitable scholarly communication landscape. As part of this initiative we are launching a quarterly class series, expanding our consultation services, and creating a new listserv for UCSF journal editors.
Quarterly Class Series
The goal of this series is to introduce topics related to open and equitable scholarly communication. The first class will be an Introduction to Inclusive and Collaborative Open Science on Sept 21. In this session we will cover some of the most prevalent trends in open science including open access publishing, open research data, open protocols, and open code. Stay tuned for future classes on anti-oppressive publishing practices, and managing your scholarly identity and promoting your work.
Did you know that our Library experts offer free 1:1 consultations on publishing and open science? Meet with one of our experts to discuss:
- Navigating scholarly publishing, finding the best journal for your research, and managing your scholarly identity and promoting your work. Learn more and book a consultation with Anneliese Taylor.
- Data management, data sharing policies, and prepping your journal for open science. Learn more and book a consultation with Ariel Deardorff.
This brand new listserv connects UCSF editors and provides a forum for discussing editorial policies, publishing best practices, open access transitions, and more. If you have a role on the editorial board or as editorial manager for a journal and would like to join the list, use the sign-up form.
