Although English-language publications dominate the academic publishing world, there is a substantial amount of valuable knowledge published every day, you may be missing if you remain a mono-lingual scholar. Even if you are bi-lingual, you may still be missing cutting-edge research. To overcome this language limitation, you do not have to learn Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Turkish, Cantonese, Swahili, or even Klingon, because now you can access this abundance of information by using resources such as Google Translate and Microsoft Translator to facilitate your development as a multilingual researcher and writer. In this presentation, I will demonstrate easy ways to search, retrieve, and utilize ideas in your research and writing from resources in over 100 languages.

Navigating the world of scholarly publishing can be daunting. From determining an appropriate publication format and conceptualizing a topic, to identifying a publisher and adhering to their guidelines, it seems only natural that adding another publishing model, open access, into the mix can make the process all the more confusing. Although the open access movement has had a place in the academic community for years, a recent influx of mandates imposed by governments and universities has sent open access publishing into a tailspin and sadly has also meant a breeding ground for predatory practices. Although open access presents its own set of challenges, choosing to publish under open access can be an incredible opportunity to create timeless collaborations and allow your innovative research findings to have much wider reach to experts all around the world. Whether you are a researcher seeking to publish your work or a librarian looking to provide funds for open access publishing and/or to provide suitable open access content to your faculty, join us as we help you to further your understanding of the full open access publication process, uncover predatory practices and identify ethical open access publishers, and utilize sustainable strategies for ensuring that published research can be freely accessible to all through transformative open access models.
