Salo will tell faculty and students how the following may impact their research or teaching career:

  • Self-archiving and open access

  • Disciplinary and institutional digital repositories

  • Research-funder initiatives (Wellcome Trust, NIH, the CURES Act)

  • Journal, monograph and textbook publishing

  • Copyright issues

  • E-resources and digital preservation

The talk is free but space is limited; sign up at the ITTraining web site or e-mail dsalo@gmu.edu.
