Description

Scholars have diminishing opportunities for publishing their research, their ideas and their projects. The advent of library-supported services like institutional repositories and editorial management systems provide an opportunity to address those issues. These services support the creation and management of professional scholarly journals and peer-reviewed series.

This presentation explores how Digital Commons as both an institutional repository and a publishing system is being used by faculty to support exciting publishing initiatives ranging from traditional journals, student/professor collaborations, clearinghouses, and so on.
