Scholarly Publishing & Communication: Issues & Resources

The Scholarly Communication, Copyright and Publishing Program provides information, consultation, resources, and events focusing on the current issues, problems and opportunities in digital publishing and scholarship.  Topics include author rights, copy rights, publishers archiving policies and copyright contracts for books and journals, open access, broader impact of research, and innovations in scholarly publishing.

The Open Dartmouth Working Group (ODWG) is a key component of the Program.  ODWG engages, informs, and educates faculty, students, and administrators at Dartmouth on current issues in open access, public access, author rights, and copyright pertaining to publishing. It also works on a wide range of related issues such as open education and open data. The members collaborate with the Education & Outreach (E&O) Program, with ITS on the Dartmouth Academic Commons (DAC), with liaison librarians across the Library, and with the Acquisitions and Cataloging & Metadata departments in the Library.

Dartmouth College Library support for scholarly publishing and communication takes many forms:


  • Dartmouth Open Access Publishing Fund: The Library helps fund the payment of Article Publication Charges (APCs) for fully open access journals. 
  • The "Gold for Gold" program from the Royal Society of Chemistry.  This means that the fee for making a particular article open access in the RSC journals can be covered.  Contact Barbara DeFelice for the needed voucher to use in paying the open access fee. 
  • Support for an early career researcher to attend OpenCon, the student and early career researcher conference on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data
