Digital Scholarship

Supporting and empowering faculty scholarship through digital tools, methods, publication, and preservation

Digital scholarship is the use of digital evidence, methods of inquiry, research, publication, and preservation to achieve scholarly and research goals. Digital scholarship can encompass both scholarly communication using digital media and research on digital media.*

Digital Scholarship at ZSR

Develop

We will work with you to discover, utilize, and customize digital tools to enhance your research methodologies.

Curate

We will work with you to digitize and digitally preserve materials, including the creation, distribution, management, and long-term preservation of digitized and born-digital materials for administrative, teaching, research, and public service needs.

Publish

We will help you navigate the complexity of copyright law, from thinking through author rights to fair use, and help you determine where to publish scholarly works that do not fit neatly into either the journal or monograph platforms.

Share

Whether you are sharing your articles or your data, publishing with support from the Open Access Fund or archiving in our institutional repository, or making your course materials broadly available, we support open sharing and reuse of research.
