Documenting the Impact of Your Scholarship
The workshop's goal is to help faculty members applying for promotion and tenure to make the case for excellence in scholarship by using tools such as citation analysis, journal metrics, and other methods. Newer faculty who are just starting to publish can also benefit by using these tools to develop effective publishing strategies. Following the presentation, participants will have hands-on opportunities to use the tools and begin documenting the impact of their own scholarship. The workshop will conclude with a faculty-led discussion about using scholarship data in the promotion and tenure process. Cosponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence and Gumberg Library.

Predatory Publishing: What You Don't Know CAN Hurt You...
A growing number of new publishers are inviting researchers and recent Ph.D. graduates to publish their work in journals of questionable value. These “predatory publishers” often present themselves as reputable publishers and then charge fees in order to get the author’s work published. Predatory publishers mimic the business models of well-respected Open Access journals, making them difficult to recognize. This workshop is aimed at faculty and graduate students looking to publish their research. Its goals are to help you understand predatory publishing and recognize predatory publishing inquiries. The presenters will discuss ways that you can investigate the reputations of publishers and journals as well as how you can combat predatory publishing in the context of your own discipline or profession.
