Open Access Week

The UCI Libraries celebrated International Open Access Week (Oct. 24-28, 2016) by presenting workshops to the campus community. Below is a summary of the information presented at these events.

ETDs Presentation: Demonstrating eScholarship and ProQuest

The UCI Libraries, in partnership with UCI Graduate Division, is excited to present UCI electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) in eScholarship, the Open-Access repository for the University of California. All ETDs submitted after Oct. 16, 2014 will automatically be publicly accessible in accordance with University policy. UCI joins seven other UC campuses in hosting their ETDs to eScholarship. The dissertations and theses will be available to a worldwide audience. Open Access ETDs benefit graduate students by making their work available faster and more widely, which leads to higher visibility, usage, and citation rates. Graduating students may request an embargo for qualifying circumstances. Records for the theses are included in ANTPAC as part of the permanent UCI record and can also be viewed from ProQuest Dissertations and Theses, a subscription index of dissertations.


ImageORCiD Presentation for Researchers

ORCiD is easy to set up and use! ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) registry helps identify authors with similar names and streamlines research workflows by assigning unique 16-digit author identifiers that enable automatic linkages between researchers and their scholarly activities. ORCID is free for individual researchers; open, flexible, easy to use; mobile; and reaches across disciplines, research sectors and national boundaries. It can help reduce reporting workload, improve author attribution and discoverability of research works, and streamline research evaluation workflows. ORCiD can work with the UC Publication Management System to update publication lists across both systems automatically. As an international, not-for-profit organization, ORCID works with over 400+ research organizations, publishers, funders, and professional associations to embed ORCID iDs into various research workflows, including submission of grant proposals to funding agencies, manuscripts to journal publishers, and datasets to data repositories.
