Author Carpentry is a researcher-to-researcher training and outreach program in open authoring and publishing, scholarly identity and reputation, and research impact. Inspired by the Modern Scientific Authoring lesson proposed by Software Carpentry founder Greg Wilson, Author Carpentry was envisioned by founder Gail Peretsman-Clement to complement and extend the research pipelines covered in Software and Data Carpentry. Author Carpentry picks up the “last mile” of the research process: writing, reporting, review, dissemination and licensing, impact measurement, and establishing author identity and reputation. This section will focus on dissemination, deception, and diversity through a publishing literacy lens. Please contact Allegra or Annelise with any questions.

This workshop is sponsored by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Science & Technology Libraries Section.
