Scholarly Publishing

UT Libraries provides several resources and expertise for scholarly publishing, including awareness of new tools and initiatives that help UT Austin faculty, research scientists and students.

SpringerNature Journals - Open Access, APC's and more! 

[from Chem libguide]

The Texas Data Repository (TDR) is open. Hosted by the Texas Digital Library and based on Harvard University’s Dataverse platform, TDR will serve as a long-term solution for the preservation and dissemination of UT’s research data.

Publishing Your Work

UT Libraries participate in a number of open access publishing initiatives, providing direct benefits to authors and support for more sustainable publishing models.

Research Data Services - assistance for organizing, curating and preserving datasets in the TDR.

Publishing tool required by NSF.

COVID-19 Consideration

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:

  • SciENcv
  • NSF Fillable PDF

All other changes and updates with the PAPPG-20 are still going to grants submitted on or after June 1, 2020. 

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. Lyon, Scholarly Communications Librarian, UT Libraries, Austin.
