This presentation will inform researchers and academics how copyright applies to their scholarly publications. Participants will learn how traditional publishing methods can affect an author’s copyright ownership of their scholarly articles as most publishers require researchers to sign a copyright transfer agreement. Attendees will discover tools and tactics, including the SPARC Author Addendum, to help them negotiate with publishers to retain certain rights to re-use and share content they have authored. Participants will also understand how publishing their work in an open access journal may allow them to retain full copyright ownership of their scholarship and learn how to manage those rights.
This webinar will highlight online resources for middle and high school lesson ideas, materials, and activities that incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion themes. The presentation will also showcase items in the physical collections at the University Libraries.
"Peril and Promise", an installment in the 6-part PBS documentary series "Latino Americans", presents a history of the diverse communities of Latinx peoples of many nationalities living in the United States from 1980 to the 21st century. The film highlights the challenges, obstacles, and perils faced by many Hispanic immigrants during this time while also detailing the vibrant communities, economic successes, and rich artistic and cultural legacies of Latinos in the United States. Mike Martinez, a doctoral student here at Ball State in our Higher Education EdD program and a Doctoral Assistant for the Pathways Mentoring Project, will be facilitating the discussion.
