open access, scholarly communications, higher education, copyright, creative commons
Those who teach and supervise students can play an important role in shaping the future of scholarly communications. Drawing students’ attention to the myriad of ways that research and scholarship can be shared openly online can provide valuable opportunities for students to disseminate their own work, engage with the work of others, and develop copyright literacy and improved academic writing and communication skills. Additionally, exposing students to the socioeconomic processes that shape access to knowledge can influence where these budding academics choose to publish and how they approach scholarly activity overall in their future careers.
