LibraOpen deposit of abstracts

Libra is the University of Virginia’s open access institutional repository, the online archive of scholarship created by the University community. For the 2024 UVA Postdoc Symposium, we are offering the possibility of publishing your accepted abstract in LibraOpen, together with your research presentation, as a part of a LibraOpen collection, to share it with the world on Open Access.

The Symposium Record is already available at this link, it includes the organizing committee, the volunteers who have helped organize the symposium, the sponsors, and the program book. The Symposium Record and all the abstracts, presentations and videos deposited as part of the LibraOpen collection will be searchable through Virgo, the catalog of UVA Libraries, using the keywords "2024 Postdoc Symposium". All these publications have a DOI and can be linked to ORCID. To learn more about ORCID or to connect your UVA Computer ID to your ORCID ID, please visit this page.

If you are unable or unwilling to share your work on open access, you are not obliged to add your presentation to the LibraOpen collection that will be created for the 2024 UVA Postdoc symposium. If you choose to deposit your talk on LibraOpen, you will be able to do so yourself and you will be asked to agree to the Libra Deposit Agreement, to share your work. You can also choose the rights for your work when you submit to LibraOpen. Options include numerous Creative Commons options, as well as All Rights Reserved.

Please, review the LibraOpen deposit checklist to learn about all the steps and requirements you must comply with when you deposit your work on LibraOpen.
