Scholarly Communication at Columbia

The scholarly communications team at Columbia advises the campus community on tools, initiatives, policies, and services pertaining to the research lifecycle, from accessing scholarship to creating, publishing, sharing, evaluating, and preserving it. Part of the digital scholarship unit at the university, we offer training and consultations on publishing, open and public access, measuring research impact, and scholarly identity. We also run the institutional repository and an established digital publishing program.
