Indiana University Press is partnering with the IU Scholars’ Commons to offer consulting services and publishing workshops to help support the scholarship of IU faculty, staff, and students. Designed on the cutting edge of research and scholarly publishing, the IU Scholars’ Commons supports the journey from curiosity to discovery to publication. Researchers come first in this space where they will find a powerful academic service hub that offers easy access to experts and technology for every stage of their scholarship.
Starting the week of September 15, IU Press staff members will be available to answer questions on publishing every Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Room R of the Scholars’ Commons, located in the east tower on the first floor of the Wells Library. Marketing staff is scheduled for the first and third Thursdays of the month, editorial staff on the second and fourth Thursdays, and journals staff on the fifth Thursday.
IU Press, along with staff members from IUScholarWorks and the IU Library, will also present a three-part series on Publishing Your First Book as part of the Scholars’ Commons events. This series is geared toward junior faculty and PhD students who are first-time authors. Each session will cover a stage in the scholarly book publishing process. The first workshop on academic book proposals with IU Press Senior Sponsoring Editor Dee Mortensen will take place September 24 at 3:30 p.m. in room E174 of the Wells Library. IU Press Editor-in-Chief Bob Sloan will host the next session on book contracts October 22 at 3:30 p.m. in room E174. For the final workshop of the series, Naz Pantaloni, Copyright Program Librarian for IUScholarWorks, and Kristina Keogh, Head of the IU Fine Arts Library, will cover book permissions on November 12 at 3:30 p.m. in room E159 of the Scholars’ Commons. Register to attend these workshops here.
