The RCR Committee, Graduate School, Office of Research, Economic Engagement and Outreach, and the Collaborative Research Excellence (CoRE) Initiative hold a series of workshops each academic year on the theme, Research Integrity from Inception through Dissemination, addressing issues that arise during the life cycle of a research study.  Below is the information about upcoming Spring 2021 workshops.

Tales from the Field: Scholarly Publishing Experiences & Cautions

Due to the complexity of the contemporary scholarly publishing landscape, researchers face a host of practical and ethical issues when making decisions about publication that may not have been on their radar within the last few years (e.g., predatory journals, open access, preprint servers, publishing data and sponsor obligations when making publication decisions). These issues also may be compounded when conducting research in interdisciplinary collaborations.  In this workshop, panelists will highlight issues that researchers may encounter and offer strategies to minimize or avoid negative consequences when making publication decisions.

In this workshop, participants will:
  • Learn about key aspects of the scholarly publishing ecosystem and how researchers should factor in their effects when making publication decisions.
  • Explore complex scholarly publishing issues that can arise during interdisciplinary collaborative research projects and provide practical measures to promote responsible publication decisions.
  • Identify strategies to help researchers navigate the scholarly publishing ecosystem to minimize negative consequences.
