Abstract/ Summary

Contributing full-text, peer-reviewed research papers to an Open Access institutional repository, such as DigitalCommons@UMaine, increases the impact of scholarly research by expanding the potential audience far beyond the reach of subscription-based journals. The rapid evolution of Open Access has some scholars playing catch up to learn the ins and outs of negotiating publishing contracts to allow for self-archiving. Open Access Repositories, Copyright Laws, and Digital Commons for Graduate Students is a 26-minute video discussing Open Access, its influence on research impact cycles, and the importance of copyright. The webinar covers topics of interest to both graduate students just entering the world of scholarly publishing and experienced researchers.
