Scholarly Communication

The Scholarly Communication department works to increase campus awareness of scholarly communication issues such as intellectual property, the economics of scholarly publishing, alternative publishing models, and increased access to scholarly resources (e.g., research data, grey literature, and published materials). The department leads development in two areas: Copyright Education and Consultation and IUScholarWorks services.

Copyright Education and Consultation

Copyright plays an important role in the scholarly communication process. As such, we work with colleagues across campus to educate and inform the IU community about various aspects of copyright law. We offer workshops and individual consultations, as well as introductory material on the Libraries’ Copyright web site.


IUScholarWorks is a suite of services centered on open access publishing models. They include a research repository of IU scholars’ works such as peer-reviewed articles, data, grey literature, and theses and dissertations, an e-journal publishing program, and data management services. For more information about IUScholarWorks and to explore our hosted content, visit the IUScholarWorks website.
