OA Week: Set the Default to Open Access

Publish Smart, Maximize Impact
OA Week workshops

Do you have an article you want to publish? Are you trying to decide where to place it? This workshop will examine how journals are ranked for impact (including some of the controversies about ranking systems), and your rights as an author. Are you confused about copyright? Do you want to be able to post copies of your article on your own website? Do you know whether you’ll be able to? We will discuss Berkeley funding to support open access publishing, and the movement in academia to make information more accessible. Not only is open access a social good, it can also be good for you as an author!

Trial: Izvestiia Digital Archive

We currently have a trial running through November 5 for the Izvestiia Digital Archive (1917-2011). Go to it through either of the following URLs:

About Izvetsiaa: “Among the longest-running Russian newspapers, Izvestiia was founded in March 1917 and during the Soviet period was the official organ of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. Remarkable for its serious and balanced treatment of subject matter, Izvestiia has traditionally been a popular news source within intellectual and academic circles.”
