Citation Tools: An Overview 

Citation management tools help you manage the research process. These tools allow you to store and organize references, as well as automatically generate in-text citations and bibliographies in a variety of citation styles, such as APA and AMA. They store PDFs, allow you to share references with others, and so much more! Learn about your options among four major citation managers: RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero, and Mendeley. This workshop will provide an overview of these tools to inform your decisions on which tool is best for you.

Fact or Fiction: Copyright and Your Thesis 

Various aspects of creating your thesis or dissertation may involve copyright.  Whether you are incorporating other people’s content, such as graphs or images, reusing some of your own work, publishing all or part of your thesis content, there are copyright considerations that can seem challenging and daunting to address.  This workshop will provide guidance in navigating the questions and decisions that come up during the thesis and dissertation process around your rights and the rights of others.

As the Fall semester begins, the Hirsh Health Sciences Library is ready to launch the next series of Open Workshops! These workshops will cover many different research topics, such as learning how to begin a literature search, managing your citations with EndNote, learning about open access, and more. See our Open Workshops page for more information, including complete workshop descriptions and schedules.

We’d also like to introduce Workshops on Demand. If you and your colleagues are interested in a workshop, but cannot attend due to a conflicting schedule, you can now request a Workshop on Demand: just let us know what your group is interested in, and we’ll create a workshop that works for you!

If you have any questions about Open Workshops, or Workshops on Demand, please call the library service desk at 617-636-6705, or email us at hhsl@tufts.edu.

Open Access Week is October 19-25th this year, which is a great opportunity to focus on how you can broaden your reach.  Open access (OA) is about making research literature freely available on the Internet, with few copyright or license restrictions.  Publishing in conventional journals is one step to disseminating your work – open access takes it to the next level.  An important advantage of OA is that it helps scholars and practitioners who may not be affiliated with resource-rich institutions utilize and benefit from your research.

Two ways to make your literature open:

  1. Publish in an OA journal, e.g. PLOS. These journals may charge authors article processing fees.
  2. Ensure that the conventional journal you publish in allows you to deposit a copy of your manuscript in an OA repository, such as the Tufts Digital Library. This option is free of charge for both author and reader.  The process would look something like this:

Tufts Digital Library

 

Have questions about how this works and/or what else you can do?  Join us for an open workshop, Disseminating your Research: Getting your work out to the widest audience, on Thursday, October 22, 2015, noon-1pm in Sackler 510.  Come find out more!

The library is offering several different open workshops this semester on topics like PubMed, Point-of-Care/Mobile Resources, and Open Access Week, just to name a few! These open workshops are a great opportunity to learn about a new research tool or to brush up on your research skills. Take a look at the HHSL Open Workshops Calendar for dates, descriptions, and to register for one (or many!) workshops. Sessions are held most Wednesdays and Thursdays in Sackler 510 at 12pm.

See you there!
