Services
Center staff and affiliates are available for consultations anywhere on campus, or by phone or
email. The Center is housed in the second floor (2 East) of the University Library. Project
teams can reserve the Center’s collaboration commons for meetings and video confer-encing.
A digital media lab is available for digitization and production work. Some of our services
include:
Understanding Copyright
What is the term of copyright in the United States, and what is the procedure for determining if
something is in the public domain? Experts in the Center offer guidance in determining
copyright status, understanding fair use, and determining when to seek permission to reuse a
work.
Data Management Planning
Some federal funding agencies now require that grant proposals include a data management
plan. Experts in the Center can assist investigators in developing research data management
plans and strategies. For more, see our page on data management plans.
Author Rights Consultation
Academic authors who do not retain their copyrights may not be able to post copies on their
web sites or reuse their articles in other settings. Many publishing contracts ask authors to
transfer their copyright, but it may be possible to negotiate this and other terms of the
agreement.
Bibliometrics
What is an impact factor, and what does it say about the reach and value of published
research? Understand the appropriate use of impact factors, h-index, citation analysis and
other bibliometric tools.
Open Access & Self-Archiving
Open access provides access to research results without payment. Center experts can guide
authors through options for open access publishing or making copies of research results openly
available through public web pages and repositories.
Digital Publishing & Research Tools
Digital tools and platforms enable new kinds of scholarly research and publishing. Center
experts are available for consultation and collaboration on digital publishing projects, and to
help scholars find and use new digital research tools.
Informational Services
Center staff and affiliates stay as current as possible about issues, trends, and activities in
scholary communications and maintain a robust presence online—writing on issues,
bookmarking articles, sharing our presentations, posting official guides, and, of course,
tweeting. For more, check out our Links.
