Scholarly Communication Toolkit

The toolkit is not an exhaustive catalog of resources. It contains select tools to address the common questions that arise in scholarly communication. For additional resource on scholarship, visit the library's Scholarship: Publishing and Presenting ResearceGuide.
The toolkit is divided into four sections:
The section that fits where you are in the process is most likely to have the tools you need, but be sure to familiarize yourself with the entire toolkit so that you don't miss a valuable resource.
