Unlock Summer Research Publishing
IU Bloomington has greatly expanded options for its faculty to participate in no-cost Open Access publishing.
As a member of the BTAA, IU Libraries signed on to a three-year Read and Publish agreement for unlimited OA publishing in Wiley hybrid and gold OA journals, including those from Hindawi. In similar BTAA agreements, Bloomington authors can publish open access at no charge with the Institute of Physics and the Microbiology Society.
These expansions add to agreements already in place with PLOS and Cambridge University Press, as well as many others.
New Issue of IUJUR Published
The Indiana University Journal of Undergraduate Research has published a new volume! Volume VII of IUJUR highlights some of the exceptional research IU undergraduates produce while pursuing their degrees. IUJUR is a student-run, interdisciplinary journal that provides opportunities for undergraduates to publish their work and to develop a deeper understanding of academic research and publishing. The journal and its associated student organization are supported by the Office of the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education and the Scholarly Communication Department at IU Bloomington Libraries. We congratulate the authors, editors, and the entire IUJUR team for their hard work and commitment in producing this volume.
Front door to data
IU's exciting new Research Data Commons will be funded by IU Research with significant support from IU Libraries and University Information Technology Services (UITS). The Research Data Commons will provide IU faculty, students, and staff with a "front door" to discover, access, and share research data and services.
"Research data should be treated with as much care as any other collections to enable the acceleration and advancement of transformational knowledge," said IU Libraries Dean Diane Dallis-Comentale. "Libraries in Bloomington and Indianapolis are an essential part of the incredible team of service providers and experts who comprise the IU Research Data Commons."
