Reevaluating and Strengthening Publishing Partnerships Between Librarians and Researchers

Recent studies in scholarly publishing show the academic publication lifecycle continues to undergo major changes. Perhaps the most significant change is that the publication process is no longer linear. Rather, the publication process has become more circular – a series of loops and connections, with some action steps repeated multiple times. Researchers, publishers, and academic librarians have all adapted their roles in response to the circular publication lifecycle, and over the past several years, these roles continue to change amidst the challenges presented by Open Access publishing, exorbitant subscription costs, transformative agreements, and other issues. Despite these challenges, however, the circular publication process represents multiple opportunities for librarians and researchers to build increasingly collaborative partnerships charged with moving authors from idea to publication. During this session, we will explore these opportunities further by examining several potential, unique methods for librarians and researchers to work collaboratively at any number of steps in the publication process. In addition to sharing collection prioritization tips and scenarios in which librarians may discuss publishing goals with researchers, we will also discuss training models in which librarians assist tenure-track faculty with other facets of the publication process beyond data access and discovery.
