Webinar: Sharing Your Scholarly Work and Increasing its Impact

Academia.edu, ResearchGate, arXiv.org, SSRN, Humanities Commons – the list of places scholars can share their work goes on and on. But how do you decide what the best places to share are? Which sharing sites are considered to be a positive force in scholarship, and which ones might have hidden motivations? This workshop offers a greater understanding of why sharing your work is beneficial and how academic social networks, institutional and discipline-specific repositories, and other sharing sites work. The information you learn will empower you to make informed decisions about when, why, and how to share your scholarly output. This webinar is presented by Jody Bailey, director of the Office of Scholarly Communications, and Eric Weeks, director of the CFDE.
