Raising The Library's Impact Factor : A Case Study In Scholarly Publishing Literacy For Graduate Students., Samantha Mcclellan, Robert Detmering, George Martinez, Anna Marie Johnson

Samantha McClellan

Graduate students across disciplines feel pressure to publish their scholarship, but they are often unsure how to go about it, partly due to a lack of explicit training in this area. This article discusses the collaborative development of a semester-long Publishing Academy, designed to promote knowledge of scholarly publishing and increase the library’s impact within the graduate student community. Demonstrating how librarians can draw on their unique skills to build a niche service addressing unmet needs on campus, the project also puts into practice a broader conception of scholarly publishing literacy, which can be linked to the Association of ...

Nasig Core Competencies For Scholarly Communication Librarians, Andrew Wesolek, Wm. Joseph Thomas, Angela Dresselhaus, Julie Fielding, Char Simser, Sarah Sutton, Jason Boczar, Rachel Miles, Stephanie Spratt, Wendy Robertson, Betsy Appleton

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

The following Core Competencies for Scholarly Communication Librarians were developed out of research and discussion conducted by the NASIG Scholarly Communication Core Competencies Task Force. Scholarly communication is defined by ACRL as “the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs (Association of College & Research Libraries, “Principles and Strategies for the Reform of Scholarly Communication 1,” 2003). The specific duties of the scholarly communication ...


Summary Of Cq’S 2016 Submissions And Editorial Decisions, Michael Lynn 2017 Cornell University

Summary Of Cq’S 2016 Submissions And Editorial Decisions, Michael Lynn

Michael Lynn

[Excerpt] In 2016, Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ) received 280 new submissions with 271 receiving editorial decisions within the year. Twenty-five submissions were accepted for publication last year. Some of the new submissions are still under invited revision and some of the acceptances were of manuscripts originally submitted in 2015, so dividing 25 by 271 to get an acceptance rate is not fully appropriate, but it does provide a reasonable approximation of the journal’s acceptance rate. By that calculation, CQ’s acceptance rate is 9%. Other, more complicated but arguably more appropriate calculations put the journal’s acceptance rate at ...


More Multi-Study Articles Wanted, Michael Lynn 2017 Cornell University

More Multi-Study Articles Wanted, Michael Lynn

Michael Lynn

[Excerpt] Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ) readers may have noticed that the lead article for this issue and for each of the previous two issues has been a multi-study paper. The lead article for the next issue of CQ will also be a multi-study paper, and this will be true for future issues as long as I have enough accepted multi-study papers to make it so. I want to use this editorial to explain my preference for multi-study articles and to encourage CQ authors to write and submit more of them.

Erau Scholarly Commons, May 30, 2013-June 30, 2014, Anne M. Casey, Chip Wolfe

Anne Marie Casey

ERAU Scholarly Commons, the institutional repository of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), debuted to little fanfare but great hope on May 30, 2013. The implementation team had worked for five months with bepress, the vendor, to construct a home page that reflects the unique aerospace concentration of the university. From the outset, Scholarly Commons has proven to be an important university resource for faculty and student research as well as for the creation of new journals and the home of conferences and events. As the first year came to an end, faculty support continued to grow as did the requests for ...


Opening Access, Increasing Impact: Irs Are Ideal For Smaller Institutions!, Janelle L. Wertzberger 2017 Gettysburg College

Opening Access, Increasing Impact: Irs Are Ideal For Smaller Institutions!, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Janelle Wertzberger

What do smaller academic institutions need to know about institutional repositories and open access? Student and faculty authors enjoy many benefits from making their work open, and the hosting institution receives international visibility. A repository can be a DIY publishing platform. Learn how Gettysburg College got started and hear about the wide range of materials that are being shared. Gettysburg’s repository, The Cupola, currently includes over 5,000 works that have been downloaded 420,000 times... and counting.


Engaging Student Journal Editors, Janelle L. Wertzberger 2017 Gettysburg College

Engaging Student Journal Editors, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Janelle Wertzberger

Editing and publishing a student research journal is a high-impact educational practice that libraries are uniquely suited to support. Gettysburg College’s Musselman Library hosts three student-edited journals in our open access institutional repository. We train student editors to use the online journal publishing platform to receive, assign, and review submissions. We also expose them to the scope of undergraduate publishing beyond our institution, describe the benefits of open access publishing to authors (including sharing their own use metrics), invite professors who edit professional journals to share their expertise with the students, and facilitate a discussion about how their editing ...

Political Action And Your Library Association, Elsa Loftis 2017 Oregon College of Art and Craft

Political Action And Your Library Association, Elsa Loftis

OLA Quarterly

Political action. Libraries. The two seem to intersect more often than one might expect (unless one is a library worker, supporter, or patron; in which case it doesn’t seem terribly unusual). People in our line of work are often called upon to assume the mantle of library-worker-activists. These calls to action affect us in our various roles as professionals, as private citizens, and as members of the Oregon Library Association.

Our association supports Oregon libraries, the people who work in them, and the communities we serve. That commitment casts a wide net in a large state full of people ...


Enhancing Civic Knowledge/Inspiring Political Engagement: The Role Of Public Libraries In Civic Participation, Donna Cohen 2017 Pacific University

Enhancing Civic Knowledge/Inspiring Political Engagement: The Role Of Public Libraries In Civic Participation, Donna Cohen

OLA Quarterly

For the past several months I have been conducting “civic education” workshops under the umbrella title: Civics for Adults—To Enhance Civic Knowledge and Inspire Political Engagement. I doubt there is anyone in the library community who is not concerned about the public’s level of civic understanding, political discourse and civic engagement. As Robert Putnam pointed out in his book Bowling Alone, the cohesive function of social and civic groups—as with the simple bowling league—has withered, and along with the demise of those groups a correlative decline in political activities like voting. Public libraries should be primary ...
