Publishing Case Studies (RCR workshop)

Case Studies in Publishing: Your Intellectual Property in Journal and
Book Contracts

Thu, September 23, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Wilson Library room S30A
register at http://z.umn.edu/1g7

Wed, September 29, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Walter Library room 204 SMART Classroom
register at http://z.umn.edu/1g7

Sponsors: University Libraries and CLA Grants, Fellowships & Research Funding In this workshop, participants will work through common intellectual property issues raised by journal article and book contracts. Relevant context will be provided on academic publishing issues such as copyright and author's rights, and cultural and economic norms. Practical strategies and helpful tools will be discussed.

This event has been designated by the Office of the Vice President for Research to satisfy the Awareness/Discussion component of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) continuing education requirement.


Also, from CLA's Grants Team, the Departments of Anthropology and Sociology, the IRB, and the FIRST program:

Working with the IRB: It's not just about compliance!

Wed Oct 6, 3:00 to 5:00 pm
1210 Heller Hall; register by emailing clagrant@umn.edu.

Two distinguished visiting experts will discuss IRB compliance and practices.


  • Professor Elaine Wethington, a medical sociologist at Cornell University, will discuss compliance issues and differing practices at researchers encounter in interdisciplinary research in the social sciences and behavioral medicine.

  • Professor Emeritus H. Russell Bernard, University of Florida, will discuss IRB compliance as a methods issue and key component of proposal development, and address how social scientists can work most effectively with the IRB.

This event has been designated by the Office of the Vice President for Research to satisfy the Awareness/Discussion component of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) continuing education requirement.

inspec.bmpA trainer for one of our popular physics literature databases, Inspec, will be on campus September 30 at 2:30 for an hour-long training session. If you'd like to learn more about using Inspec to search for literature or keep current on a topic, I invite you to join us.

The session will be held in 310 Walter, with limited seating, so please let me know if you'd like to attend. We also will plan for refreshments.

We access Inspec through the Engineering Village platform (powerful combination of Engineering Village and Inspec in one search). Subjects covered include:

physics
electrical and electronic engineering
communications
computer science
control engineering
information technology
manufacturing and mechanical engineering
operations research
material science
oceanography
engineering mathematics
nuclear engineering
environmental science
geophysics
nanotechnology
biomedical technology
biophysics.

The library is offering two new workshops that satisfy your RCR continuing education requirement. See the session dates and links to register below.

Getting Acquainted with Copyright

How many copyrights do you own? How long will they last? Can someone else quote from your paper in their own? Can you post your course readings online for your students? Copyright is really confusing - what is it even for, anyway? This workshop will give you a solid grounding in some of the elements of copyright law that are essential to scholarship, teaching, and research. Learn more about protections in the law for educators, and about your rights as an author or creator. Discuss and debate with your peers about some of the burning questions in the field, and enjoy exploring some entertaining and thought-provoking examples. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
Registration link - Sessions on 10/4 and 11/2

Fair Use in Everyday Life

Fair use is a vital part of copyright law for scholars, researchers, artists, and just about anyone who communicates with anyone else. Quotation, criticism, review, collage, parody - all involve aspects of fair use. In this workshop, we'll discuss examples of fair use situations in visual arts, music, and video, as well as in academic research and writing. We'll learn to identify situations where fair use applies, and other situations where copyright answers may be more straightforward. We'll also develop our understandings of the factors that determine whether a use is "fair" and practice applying these concepts with real-world examples. Expect to think hard, debate a little, and have some fun. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
