Scholarly Communications & Publishing
We offer scholarly communications and publishing services to maximize the impact, reach, and dissemination of your scholarship.
Authors’ Rights and Copyright
We can help you understand the terms of publishers' agreements and develop strategies for negotiating to retain the rights that are important to you, including the rights to reuse your works or post them online.
The Research Repository @ WVU
The Research Repository allows you to archive your research and make it openly accessible without any charges. It can also be used to share your research posters, datasets, images, and other innovative forms of scholarly communication.
Digital Publishing Institute
The DPI offers support for researchers who want to publish a work of digital scholarship as a supplement to a book or article, or as a standalone piece. We can work with you to identify platforms for publishing your research in the way that best fits your project.
Research Data Management
We provide support for the development of data management plans and can help you incorporate best practices for data management into your research processes. The Libraries also support the sharing and publication of datasets through the Research Repository @ WVU.
Metrics, Impact, and Visibility
Learn about the different ways to measure and increase the impact and visibility of your research and how to manage your online scholarly presence.
Deciding Where to Publish
We provide support on finding a publication that fits the scope of your research. This includes identifying reputable venues, guidance for evaluating journals, identifying high quality outlets, and avoiding low quality and predatory journals.
For support in these areas, or for other questions, contact Jonah McAllister-Erickson, Scholarly Communications Librarian or your subject liaison.
