Open Access logoThe UWM Libraries are offering two workshops during International Open Access Week, Oct. 23-29.

“Can I Share My Article?” Oct. 24, 12 – 1 pm, Library Instruction Room A, Daniel M. Soref Learning Commons

Looking for a way to make your scholarly articles more visible? Green Open Access is the practice of depositing authors’ manuscripts in a repository such as UWM Digital Commons. Content archived in Digital Commons can be searched in Google/Google Scholar making it accessible to all interested readers. In this workshop we will review how your publications can be archived in line with their access and usage rights.

“Leveraging ORCID in Your Research Workflow” Oct. 25, 4 – 5 pm, Library Instruction Room A, Daniel M. Soref Learning Commons

ORCID is quickly becoming standard within scholarly systems as a way to track publications and to disambiguate researchers with the same name. Many funding agencies and journals now request a researcher’s ORCID number when submitting proposals and articles. This workshop will cover the benefits of having an ORCID number and walk participants through the process of creating an ORCID profile.
