Raising the Visibility of your Scholarship through Sharing and Preprint Platforms
Presenters: Nicky Agate and Rebecca Stuhr
Sharing your work enables you to reach the broadest audience. It will help you connect with your peers and with scholars in your field, but also to scholars across disciplines and to the public. There are benefits and challenges connected with sharing and you will want to consider a range of issues, including copyright and permissions, comidification of your data, and time investment. Rebecca Stuhr will present on major academic sharing sites, including Academia.edu and ResearchGate, Humanities Commons, arXiv, and the growing number of rxiv preprint platforms. Nicky Agate will bring you up to date on Penn's institutional repository, ScholarlyCommons. Participants will:
- Gain familiarity with for-profit and not-for-profit sites and their audiences
- Understand how the sites differ from one another
- Understand how copyright factors into sharing your work
- Learn about the possibilities for collaboration through academic platforms
- Become familiar with how these platforms will give your work the attention it deserves
