Scholarly Communication

Sign post with arrows that read "Media," "Internet," "Television," "Radio," "Magazines," and "Newspapers"

Sharing your findings is a critical, but sometimes intimidating or onerous, part of the research process. The Library’s scholarly communication services can help you make informed decisions about how and where to publish your work—and how to share it through other forms of media—to ensure it has the greatest possible impact and reach.

  • The Library’s Resource Guide to Scholarly Publishing at Georgetown has information on research and writing, submitting your manuscript, promoting your work, and understanding copyright.
  • Learn about communicating through the media to expand the reach of your research.
  • Open Access can help to make scholarship more broadly available. Georgetown has several open access initiatives and guidance for researchers who might be considering open access publishing.
  • Know your rights as an author.
  • See recordings of previous workshops and symposia related to scholarly communication.
  • DigitalGeorgetown offers researchers the opportunity to deposit their work to ensure visibility through Google Scholar, HoyaSearch, and other search engines and databases, as well as long-term preservation and archiving. Options for embargo and access controls support your intellectual property rights.
