Scholarly Communication

The Office of Scholarly Communication

The term “scholarly communication” broadly refers to the steps of scholarly research, writing, publishing, and any other aspect of scholarly output. It is a complex process.

The process includes, but is not limited to:

  • Doing research for a paper
  • Preparing to write a journal article
  • Determining which publisher to use
  • Facilitating awareness and access to your works

Our Office provides services for three important aspects of scholarly communication:
