The Scholarly Communications team has recently released two videos meant to provide the UBC community with a brief introduction into two important topics:

  • How to comply with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications and;
  • Author Rights (everything you need to know before, during, and after you sign a publisher agreement)

The format for these videos is information you can use in 5 minutes or less, so if you have a few minutes to spare and are curious, check them out below:
