The Library's Scholarly Communication Services supports researchers and scholars at UC San Diego from all backgrounds, disciplines, and at all career stages in matters relating to scholarly communications.

Our services promote research and scholarship dissemination, accessibility, and impact.

Learn about support for publishing in all modes, copyright and author rights, Open Access Policies, impact and reputation management, and open access content creation and discovery. 

Scholarly communication is the access, creation, and dissemination of scholarship and research in a variety of formats and states of completion. The process and product of scholarly communication is changing radically as scholars and researchers analyze information, transform it into knowledge, share insights, influence policy, and contribute to broader understandings and uses of the research and the issues being studied. - The Scholarly Communication Institute
