Created specifically for the HKUST research community, Scholarly Communications@HKUST Library was launched in June 2014. This online information platform can help keep our researchers up to date with the latest trends in scholarly publishing and communications. We focus on 4 main areas:
Author Tips – These pages provide practical methods to promote and optimize citations of research articles. Videos and presentation files of author workshops are available for download.
Data Management – We show valuable online resources about how to write a data management plan, data management tools, data repositories, data citation, standards, guidelines and best practices.
Open Access (OA) – Users can explore why open access is important and they can get the details of OA requirements from funding agencies in Hong Kong and other countries.
Research Repositories – These help researchers to fulfill the RGC's grant requirements by depositing research outputs in HKUST's Institutional Repository. They can showcase their research output via the Scholarly Publications Database (SPD).
