Open Access (OA) publishing initiatives that have direct benefits to UT authors:
Publishing tool required by NSF.
NSF Proposal Guidelines planned to go into effect June 1, 2020 included the requirement of an NSF approved format for the biosketch and current and pending support. Due to COVID-19 and surrounding considerations, this requirement has been pushed back to the date of October 1, 2020. NSF is still encouraging researchers to start using the NSF approved formats. The approved formats include:
All other changes and updates with the PAPPG-20 are still going to grants submitted on or after June 1, 2020.
Journals in each category are ranked in order of Impact Factor (IF) as determined by:
These tools are not white lists or black lists. They are designed to provide some information about the transparency and quality of the publication services of a given journal. They should be used in conjunction with disciplinary knowledge, consultation with colleagues, and the author’s own professional judgment. -- C.

Copyright Tools - American Library Association (ALA)
The Public Domain Slider [Digital Copyright Slider] is a tool to help determine the copyright status of a work that is first published in the U.S. Most of us know that any work published before 1923 is in the public domain, but the copyright status for copyrighted works after 1923 can be difficult to determine. There are many works in the public domain that have been published after 1923 because registration was not renewed and/or the copyright symbol – © – does not appear on the work. If a work is in the public domain, you are free to use that work in any way that you choose – digitize it, re-publish it, post it on the web etc. with appropriate attribution. For those works that are still protected by copyright, don’t forget to consider fair use to determine if the work can be used in other more limited ways.
Establishing a professional image is important in the publishing world. This guide will help you get started, providing the necessary tools for curating publications and enhancing your scholarly online presence.
