The Scholarly Communication department works to increase campus awareness of scholarly communication issues such as intellectual property, the economics of scholarly publishing, alternative publishing models, and increased access to scholarly resources (e.g., research data, grey literature, and published materials). We believe that accessible, transparent research is critical to modern scholarship and are dedicated to supporting these principles within the IU community. The department leads development in Open Access, Copyright Education, Library Publishing (including IUScholarWorks, IU's system-wide repository), and Data Management services.
The following services are available from the the Scholarly Communication department:
