Owning Their Voices: How Librarians Can Help Graduate Students Develop Publishing Literacy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Advocating for “publishing literacy,” or the graduate student's readiness to publish in the scholarly market, is a natural extension of the librarian’s role in information literacy. Librarians can help students learn about their rights and responsibilities as authors in the emerging landscape of digital scholarly publishing, whether in nonprofit, for-profit, or open-access repositories and journals, and about threats to their intellectual property from predatory or fraudulent publishers. This paper considers scholarly literature on publishing literacy and suggests strategies for instruction, based on a pilot program developed jointly by ACU Library and ACU Press to provide in-person and online training for graduate students on publishing readiness, training students to own their own voices.
