Where Should I Publish?
The quantity and variety of academic journals can be overwhelming, and it can be easy to choose the wrong one to submit an article manuscript. Whether you’re new to scholarly publishing, branching out into a new research area, or just looking to broaden your horizons for journal venues, this workshop will highlight why it’s important to avoid the “wrong” journals, what traits make the “right” journals, and provide hands-on experience with specialized tools to support your search for “the one.”
Promote Your Scholarship with ORCID
Researchers often face problems of clear identification and credit for their work: Which John Smith wrote this paper, and what if you change your name, not to mention your institutional affiliations? ORCID (or the Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is quickly becoming the free, independent standard for research disambiguation and recognition. In this hands-on workshop, discover what an ORCID can do for you, start setting up your ID, and learn how the library can help you take it further.
Intro to Open Educational Resources (OER)
Have you been hearing about OER from other instructors in your department or discipline? Maybe you just want to understand the mysterious OER checkbox on the textbook adoption form. This session will explain the nuts and bolts of OER: what it is, how it benefits both students and instructors, and how the SHSU Library can support you if you want to "explOER" your options for new curricular materials!
