I am thrilled to announce that Brianna Schofield has joined the Stanford Libraries as director of the new Office of Scholarly Communication. Brianna will support faculty, researchers, students, and staff with their scholarly communications concerns, including providing information on their intellectual property rights and responsibilities, implementing Stanford’s new Open Access Policy, and strategizing to improve access to Stanford’s scholarship and research outputs. Brianna looks forward to working with Stanford Libraries colleagues to advance new scholarly publishing models.
Stanford’s Open Access (OA) Policy, approved by the Faculty Senate in November 2020, established the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) as the home for open access articles at Stanford. Over the past year, Stanford Libraries has created and released an improved web application for depositing content into the SDR. With this new application, it's now easier for any Stanford depositor -- faculty, post-docs, and students alike -- to take advantage of open access features such as ORCID iDs and DOIs, and to make your OA articles available under an open license.
