This task focuses on increasing access to your scholarly work. Studies suggest that openly accessible research generally receives more citations than research that can only be accessed via subscription. You can make your research openly accessible in a variety of ways--by archiving early drafts in a repository like arXiv, by depositing your research data in repositories like GitHub or figshare, by publishing in an open access journal, or by sharing your research online after publication in a traditional journal. To assist with any of these strategies, WSU Libraries provides local publishing solutions via Research Exchange, a digital repository where WSU researchers can house their publications, presentations, educational and research materials. In this task we invite you to make use of Research Exchange to increase access to your research.
To get started with Research Exchange, do the following:
WSU Libraries will do the following:
At this point, you can do the following:
For posters, slides, educational materials, datasets, and other unpublished work, you most likely hold copyright and can choose to add these to Research Exchange as well. If you choose to do so, you can send copies of your work to email@example.com or post directly by navigating to https://research.libraries.wsu.edu and clicking on the "Share Your Work" tab to the top right of the screen (note that login is required). We'll review anything you upload and add it to an appropriate collection in Research Exchange.
