What is Scholarly Communication?

Scholarly Communication is the process in which research is published and shared. Scholarly Communication at The University of Tampa focuses on making faculty and student scholarship available through The University of Tampa Institutional Repository (UoTIR), educating authors on copyright and their rights, and advocating for Open Access, an international movement to make research freely available to the world. We help all faculty and students share their scholarship and maximize their research impact.
