Learn about open access publishing opportunities through the UC’s transformative agreements (open to UC authors) and other avenues open to all authors.
The UC San Diego University Librarian, Erik Mitchell, will give an update on the UC Transformative Agreements and where we are in the process of increasing sustainable journal subscription access and OA publishing discounts or full-coverage for UC authors.
Allegra Swift, UC San Diego Scholarly Communication Librarian, will discuss OA publishing avenues for authors whose chosen publishing venue or format is not covered by the UC agreements.
An open access virtual workshop for instructors given by Librarians from University of California at San Diego (UC San Diego, Temple University, the University of California at Irvine, and the University of California at San Francisco.
“Predatory” publishing, especially in the health sciences, is an ongoing concern and it is essential for researchers to be able to recognize deceptive publishing practices. It is important, though, not to oversimplify what constitutes predatory practices. While using tools like “blocked” or “approved” lists helps researchers avoid predatory publishers, these lists can reinforce power dynamics that exclude marginalized, non-western viewpoints. Come to this session to learn how to balance publishing in high quality open access journals while staying aware of the biases in scholarly publishing. This event is geared towards researchers but is open to all.
Following this session, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the characteristics of deceptive publishing practices in order to avoid their tactics.
2. Understand the inherent and hidden biases in the publication industry in order to challenge their own assumptions.
3. Differentiate the limitations of simplistic lists of deceptive journals and publishers.
4. Assess publishing venues using reliable criteria and resources while avoiding bias.

Open Publishing Fest celebrates communities developing open creative, scholarly, technological, and civic publishing projects. Together, we find new ground to share our ideas.
This is at once a collaborative and distributed event. Sessions are hosted by individuals and organizations around the world as panel discussions, fireside chats, demonstrations, and performances. We connect those points to bring them in conversation with one another and map out what’s next.
We seek to build networks of resilience and care for people working on new ways to develop and share knowledge.
Join us by proposing a session. Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis up to and throughout the fest.
The Library Publishing Forum is an annual conference bringing together representatives from libraries engaged in (or considering) publishing initiatives to define and address major questions and challenges; to identify and document collaborative opportunities; and to strengthen and promote this community of practice.

Scientific and Scholarly Communication is in the middle of a system-wide disruption. These changes have affected every aspect of research, from its practice, to its administration, to its use. There are new forms of
publication, new standards and expectations, new ways of measuring and demonstrating success, new challenges and pitfalls. At the FSCI, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the latest trends and
gain expertise in new technologies in research flow, new forms of publication, new standards and expectations, and new ways of measuring and demonstrating success that are transforming science and scholarship.
All levels of participant, from absolute beginners to those advanced at scholarly communication, will find courses of interest. If you are a scholar/researcher, librarian, institution administrator, fund manager,
publishing administrator/editor, data manager, student, or anyone else
who participates in scholarly communication, you will benefit from
attending FSCI. You can review the complete course list here. To register please click.”

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 |10:00 – 11:30 am (11:30 -12:00 hands-on)
Scholars and researchers, academic departments, and universities increasingly are asked to disclose the impact of their research to external funders, for promotion and tenure review, and to measure against their peers. While the practice of measuring research impact isn’t new, the availability of new tools and methods of communication has proliferated in recent years. In this workshop, you will learn about these available metrics tools, both “traditional” (like Web of Science) and “alternative” (like Altmetric), how to incorporate these into telling the story of your research impact, and learn some of the ways you can increase your visibility as a scholar. We’ll cover a variety of metrics methods and tools that allow for the communication of impact across the disciplines.
