Hacking the Academy: How Will YOU Publish?


The publishing world is shifting from traditional to digital formats. Scholars struggle between publishing in academic journals or book form versus the digital, iterative, open access format; how will YOU publish? 

Verletta Kern, Music Outreach Services & Digital Scholarship Librarian explains that the UW Libraries pilot project “Hacking the Academy” will “raise awareness of this type of work that people are doing, to see what’s being done across disciplines, and to give people an opportunity to have conversation about this new kind of emerging work and how people are making it happen.” Hear about and share your experience using traditional means or digital tools to create and produce your work.
