Know Your (Copy)Rights!
Wednesday, May 29
2:00–3:00 p.m.

Between open access policies and journal copyright transfer agreements, it’s hard to know how to share your scholarship to maximize readership and research impact.
  • Bring digital files of your papers, posters, etc. to upload!
  • We’ll provide easy ways to know what to share and where, when, and how.
  • We’ll help you upload your articles, look at your favorite journals’ copyright agreements, and answer any other questions about sharing your work.*
*No legal counsel will be in attendance, but we can help with referral.
