IFLA SCITECH Webinar: Author Carpentry: Open Access Hands-On Workshop (Session One)
Join Allegra Swift, Scholarly Communications Librarian at UC San Diego, as she presents “Identifying Reputable OA Journals,” a 90-minute hands-on workshop. This workshop is the first in a two-part series featuring the Author Carpentry curriculum founded at Caltech.
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.
