Open Scholarship Workshops: Spring 2019

Image Copyright for Theses and Publications

Images are an important part of the academic discourse, but sometimes finding suitable images for your scholarly publications can be a complex task. In this workshop we will discuss copyright issues related to the use and re-use of images in scholarly publications, including: how to find free images or where to buy them, do a reverse image search, check on usage rights and licenses, request permissions for re-use, assign a Creative Commons license to your own images, cite images in bibliographies, and good practices for image captioning. Bring your questions and examples and be ready to tackle some interesting cases.

Starting the Publication Process

Looking to publish your work but unsure where to start? Join us for this two-part workshop!

During the first half of the workshop, graduate students will be guided through the process of locating scholarly journals related to their research work and identifying a good fit for their potential publication. In the second half, students will examine the writing conventions of their selected journal and learn strategies for applying these conventions to their own writing. Bring your laptop, questions and examples, and get ready for an in-depth exploration of potential journals.
