I Finished My Dissertation, Now What?
You're writing or have finished your dissertation...what's next? Should you embargo? Put it on ProQuest? Should you formally register for copyright? Should you use a Creative Commons license? What about the future? Are you planning on publishing based on your dissertation? This workshop will cover these issues and more, discussing your scholarship now and in the future.
You will learn about your rights as an author and how to protect them, things to take into consideration as you prepare for subsequent publication, and general tips and tricks for publishing and sharing your work. There will be ample time for Q&A., so bring your questions!
Presented by Deborah Stewart, Head, Penn Museum Library, Rebecca Stuhr, Director, Academic Engagment, and Christine E. Weller, Assistant General Counsel and Copyright Advisor.
