Scholarly Communication Office: Supporting UOB research community

UOB Libraries established the Scholarly Communication Office (SCO) for the purposes of supporting UOB researchers in disseminating and preserving their scholarly work, and helping in increasing the visibility and the impact of the research output of the University.

SCO focuses on five key areas : 

 

 1 

   Strategic publishing: Where to get published?

  • We advise researchers on the economics of publishing, mainly about Open Access.
  • We assist researchers in identifying adequate sources to publish in.
  • We emphasize on authors’ intellectual property rights and assisting with the interpretation and amendment of publication contracts.

‚Äč   Research impact & citation metrics

  • We assist different faculties and departments in measuring the impact of their research output by generating regular research performance reports.

 

 3 

    Online visibility

  • We assist researchers in improving  their online scholar visibility on different research platforms such as Scopus, Google Scholar, Academia.edu and ResearchGate.

    UOB Institutional Repository

  • We collect, preserve and maximize discovery of institutional research output.
