The Emory Libraries Scholarly Communications Office (SCO) website content has moved to a new home. The overall goal for this project was to relocate the content of SCO’s legacy site to the Emory Libraries website, integrating the SCO content with the style, navigation, and search capabilities of the Libraries site. This migration makes finding SCO web content more straightforward for all users of the Libraries site and ensures seamless access to important information about all aspects of scholarly communications services managed by SCO, including copyright, open access, publishing, open education, and more. Also included is information about the two repositories managed by SCO staff: OpenEmory, a digital repository housing scholarly work by Emory faculty members, and Emory Theses and Dissertations, a digital repository housing work by Emory graduate students and College Honors Program undergraduate students.
All URLs from the legacy SCO website will soon redirect to corresponding pages on the Libraries site, and the new locations for SCO content are discoverable through landing pages in four categories:
- Scholarly Communications, linked from the Services top menu, provides general information about Scholarly Communications services and programs as well as links to main topic areas, contact information, news, and workshops.
- Copyright, linked from the Research top menu, leads to extensive information about copyright law as it applies to scholarly research, publishing, and classroom instruction at Emory.
- Open Access and Publishing, linked from the Research top menu, covers many aspects of open access for users and creators of information resources. It includes information about Emory’s Open Access Policy and publishing in open access journals.
- Open Educational Practices, linked from the Research top menu, provides information about finding, using, and creating open educational resources (OER) and open pedagogy for instructors.
- Information about Research Data Management and Dataverse, formerly part of the SCO site, has been incorporated into the Research Data website.
We are excited that the valuable information and connection to services provided by the Scholarly Communications Office site has found a new home. Stay tuned for more updated and expanded content in the coming months!
