New Releases in the Scholarly Communications Short Video Series!

Vaccine ResourcesThe Himmelfarb Library Scholarly Communications Committee has released a second installment of short lectures to our Scholarly Communications Short Video Library. Each 3-5 minute video addresses a specific topic ranging from how to find research collaborators, to what editors look for in submitted manuscripts. The list below provides links and brief descriptions for this second round of lectures:

•   Archiving Scholarship in an Institutional Repository (IR):
What is an Institutional Repository (IR) and how can it be used to help promote the visibility of your research? In this brief session, we’ll discuss how to archive items in Health Sciences Research Commons (HSRC), the institutional repository for The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, the Milken Institute School of Public Health, and the School of Nursing.
•   Tracking Pending Publications:
You’ve compiled your manuscript, filled out the required fields and successfully submitted it to the journal of your choice. What happens next? In this video we offer guidance on how to track submitted publications.
•   Screening: What do Editors Look For?:
Don't get rejected at the editor's desk! Journal editors look for a few key things when considering papers for publication. In five minutes, Reference and Instruction librarian Stacy Brody breaks down the key criteria editors use, including novelty, significance, relevance, ethics and reporting, transparency and openness, and technical guidelines.
•   How to Include Article Processing Charges (APCs) in Funding Proposals:
You don't have to pay for article processing charges (APCs) out of pocket - request grant funding to cover these fees. Learn how to include APCs in your funding proposals with just a few easy steps!
•   Basics of Collaboration Tools in the Research Process:
Do you know how to easily find collaborators in your department, university, and across institutions? There are a number of tools available to help you build new research partnerships. In this session, learn how to find collaborators who can bring a fresh perspective and expand the impact of your research.
•   Compliance with NIH Data Policies:
A brief tutorial designed to introduce you to NIH data policies and provide you with an overview of their impact on the research lifecycle.
•   Getting Help with Systematic
What resources are available to help you with a systematic review of medical literature? In this session we discuss what tools can help you to streamline the process of putting together a systematic review.
