Research Life Cycle

Office of Scholarly Communication Helps Your Research Journey from Plan to Publication and Beyond

The UCF Libraries’ Office of Scholarly Communication provides support for researchers at UCF. Along every step of the way, services are offered to facilitate your research plan, project, publication, and digital scholarship efforts.

Plan
Overwhelmed by your literature review? Meet with a librarian for in-depth assistance related to locating relevant materials and managing your citations. If you have never tried RefWorks or EndNote, let us show you their propensity for disentangling the research process.

Managing your citations is one thing, but managing your data is quite another. You may have funding or grant requirements to make your data openly accessible, or you may just want to keep your data safe and organized. Before you start accumulating data, let us help you consider options that will save you time and minimize stress throughout the research planning process. (more…)
