Graduate Student Research Skills Workshop — Copyright Essentials

Graduate Student Research Skills Workshop

Tuesday, Feb. 7, 3:30-5, Rice Hall Auditorium (Room 130 Rice Hall)

University of Virginia

Please join your fellow SEAS graduate students in this, the inaugural, Research Skills Workshop.  The topic—-Copyright Essentials.

With the Engineering School’s implementation in 2012 of a new digital-only deposit program for master’s theses and dissertations,  Engineering graduate students must address enhanced responsibilities for copyright, grants compliance, and other traditional author’s issues of privacy, defamation, and related concerns. Students will be required to sign a formal deposit license with the University Library as part of their degree completion process, and all theses and dissertations will be available worldwide.  Good advance planning and awareness of key copyright and other legal requirements are more essential than ever before. Madelyn Wessel from the Office of General Counsel will be here to talk about the library deposit license and the new Copyright Essentials materials that have been prepared to assist Engineering School students with this new program.  Some of the ways students can protect and share their scholarly and research works via Creative Commons and Open Source licensing, and other author’s rights issues will also be discussed.  The workshop will provide ample opportunities for Q & A.

Look for future announcements and other opportunities to learn and enhance your research skills in this new, monthly workshop series for the entire SEAS Community of Scholars.

Brought to you by the Graduate Student Module of the Strategic Plan Implementation Team and the Office of the Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Programs

Tips on Publishing Your Research

Publishing Your Research 101 Video Series

The effective communication of scientific research is vital both to the scientific community and to a scientist’s career. ACS Publications (American Chemical Society) has launched the Publishing Your Research 101 video series to assist authors and reviewers in understanding and improving their experience with the processes of writing, submitting, editing, and reviewing manuscripts.

Who should listen? If you are writing your first research publication, then this series is definitely for you. If you have submitted articles in the past, but would like to improve your skills, then you would benefit from following this series. If you would like to know more about the scholarly communication process, then you will surely find some of these episodes to be of interest. If you are a faculty member or librarian, and are looking for ways to help your students become authors and reviewers, then this series will offer some useful material to build on.

Videos will be released monthly discussing topics such as selecting a journal for submission, writing a good cover letter, suggesting reviewers, responding to reviewer comments and manuscript rejections, tips for non-native English speakers, and more.

You can view the series at the ACS web site http://pubs.acs.org/page/publish-research/index.html
