'Just a quick note to let you know that tomorrow will be the second workshop on IUScholarworks. Please feel free to attend, even if you have not signed up for it.
Introduction to IUScholarworks for African Studies Faculty and Graduate Students, Thu. Sept. 11, 12:00-1:00, Wells Library, E 157
IUScholarworks is Indiana University’s centralized, electronic, institutional repository for academic research, both pre-and post-publication. It is non-profit, designed to showcase and collect academic works for their long-term preservation and improved access, for the benefit of the scholarly community at large, and no charge is made for the use of any of the material deposited there. For area studies disciplines such as African Studies, this is a particularly powerful tool to provide increased access to research for our colleagues on the continent. This workshop presents an overview of IUScholarworks and a demonstration of the submission process. It will also discuss the issue of copyright and, specifically, author’s rights as they sign publishing contracts.
