The second in the series of webinars on library-based publishing, this session focused on the publication of undergraduate research journals. Charles Watkinson, Director of the Purdue University Press and Head of Scholarly Publishing Services at Purdue Libraries, will provide an overview of the current state of library-based publishing of undergraduate research journals.
Charles was followed by Jeff Rubin (Tulane University) discussing the forthcoming Tulane Journal of Undergraduate Research, spearheaded by Gary Talarchek, Ph.D with the Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT). This journal will bring together undergraduate research from across Tulane's schools and departments. The approach in developing the journal has focused on faculty buy-in in order to build a solid and stable editorial board to ensure the journal's longevity.
Rebel Cummings-Sauls (University of South Florida) discussed the library's connection with the undergraduate journals and the protections and benefits the library provides that it did not have when it was sponsored only by the math department alone.
Micah Vandegrift, Joe O'Shea, and Katie Rybakova from Florida State University described relevant activities underway at FSU Libraries and sustainability issues related to undergraduate journals.
