This is a REd Asynchronous (online/self-paced) Class.
Class Description: Being an academic author is complex. Not only do academic authors need to have the skills to write and communicate their findings, but they also need to successfully navigate institutional policies and discipline norms.
This course provides an opportunity to reflect on your identity as an author or co-author at the University of Utah as well as in your discipline. The course will help you know when you are an author and copyright owner and distinguish when others are authors and co-copyright owners in light of university and discipline approaches.
Class Objectives: At the conclusion of this class, you should be able to:
- Determine where you fit in author ordering
- Choose a legitimate journal or publisher
- Guide yourself and your co-authors through publishing policies
- Navigate the peer-review & post-publication process
