APEX: Authorship, Impact & Dissemination (Surrey)

July 09, 2015

This workshop will focus on online tools to disseminate your research and will be facilitated by Nicole White, Head of SFU's Research Commons

  • When: July 15, 1:30-3:30 pm
  • Where: Room 3250, SFU Surrey
  • Register: Using myInvolvement

This session will focus largely on the process that takes place after an article has been accepted for publication, including author rights. It will include a discussion of copyright transfer agreements and license to publish consent forms. The session will also provide insight into publishing venues for assuring your research has the best possible visibility, accessibility, and impact. The workshop will provide an opportunity to explore citation analysis and research impact measures of journals in your area of research. A few questions this session will help to answer: Who's citing your research? What are the top journals in your field? What are predatory publishers and how you can avoid them?

Please bring a laptop or device with you so you can search the web during this session. 

All current SFU grad students and postdoctoral fellows are welcome to attend.
