Over the past six months the University of Otago Library has been working to develop a new guide about scholarly communication. This guide is intended for new, emerging and established researchers.
This guide brings together many aspects of the scholarly communication process, from finding research networks and calls for papers, to suggestions for managing documents and references, and it provides information about research repositories.
The guide covers issues such as ethics, rights management and university policies about IP for students and staff. It guides the user to information about Open Access and considerations around publishing. The inclusion of links to support services makes finding assistance quick and stress free.
