Library As Publisher

Academic libraries are increasingly investing in new efforts to support their research and teaching faculty in the activities they care about most.  Learn why becoming a publisher can help meet the most fundamental needs of your research community and at the same time can help transform today’s inflationary cost model for serials.  We will explore not only why to become a publisher but exactly how to achieve it, step by step, including careful selection of publishing partners, choosing the right platform for manuscript submission and editorial workflow management,  one-time processes to launch a new journal, conducting peer reviews, maintaining academic quality, and measuring impact.  We’ll also cover the broader range of publishing activities where libraries can have an impact, including open access monographs, general institutional repositories and subject-based author self-archiving repositories.  We will close with a review of tools, services, and communities of support to nurture the new library publishing venture.

She became an advocate for Open Scholarship as an early career researcher, and turned the focus of her career to helping her fellow scholars navigate the life cycle of scholarship.
