Current Topics Discussion: Pre-print Repositories in the Social Sciences, October 31, 2018 - 4:00 PM Easter Time
Dr. Philip Cohen, Professor of Sociology, University of Maryland College Park and Director of SocArXiv
William Cross, Director, Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center, North Carolina State University and PsyArXiv Steering Committee member

An engaging panel of experts will discuss why researchers choose to share pre-print manuscripts in open archives online, including PsyArXiv and SocArXiv. Participants will learn more about the benefits of pre-print repositories, such as rapid distribution of research and rapid feedback on scholarship. Common questions about citation and access for literature searches, systematic reviews, and grants will be addressed. Panelists will also provide insight into the use of pre-print repositories in libraries as “grey” literature. Participants are encouraged to bring their tough questions about open archives for this enlightening panel discussion.
All participants will need to pre-register. IMPORTANT: Please register at https://acrl.webex.com/acrl/onstage/g.php?MTID=ecb8fd6e5859f493030ea8bbd3a09af54 to reserve a spot!
