Pathways to Scholarship workshops

- UVic Libraries

The Pathways to Scholarship Series was created to provide institutional and mentoring support to promote the academic success of our scholars.

Identifying the right journal
Think of your journal selection as finding the right community in which to start a conversation about your research. In this session you will learn how to evaluate journals for scope, access and impact to identify the most appropriate venue to share your scholarship.

Predatory publishing
Publishing in high-quality, peer-reviewed journals remains a prime goal for academics because it is tied to promotion and tenure, and is important for your evaluation. In this session you'll learn about the characteristics of predatory publishers and how to spot predatory journals.

Navigating your publication agreement
Find out how to read publication agreements and learn strategies for protecting your rights to your intellectual property and education re-use rights.
