In response to a growing concern about the increasing concentration of control of research communication functions by a small number of players, SPARC and COAR have developed a list of seven Good Practice Principles for Scholarly Communication. The List is meant to “provide a framework to ensure that services are transparent, open, and support the aims and values of the scholarly community” (SPARC).

To learn more about the principles and download a copy, refer to the SPARC website.

Recently the Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office released its 2017/2018 Impact and Activity Report, showcasing some of the year’s highlights and accomplishments.

Read the Report.

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:
