Scholarly Communications & Data Management Resources

The University Libraries offer a full array of Scholarly Communications-related resources and services to support faculty and graduate students’ research from conception to publication and promotion. In addition to hosting the University’s digital repository and scholarly profiles for faculty, the library’s scholarly communications experts can assist you with data management planning and curation, copyright and reuse licensing, promoting and monitoring use of your work, and building your professional brand.

For general information, visit The Atrium or contact Ruth Baker, Scholarly Communications Librarian, at For help with data management planning, follow the links below.

Plan & Propose

To get the most out of your data, plan early how you will collect, use, and share it. Many funders now require data management plans (DMPs), and many publishers require that data be made publicly available.

Create & Collect / Analyze & Assure

Ensure that you are following best practices while actively collecting, caring for, and analyzing your data. Host, secure, and share your “working” data in Digital Commons @ Georgia Southern during the active phase of research.


Prepare & Publish / Curate & Share

Prepare your data for deposit and archiving in a data repository like Digital Commons @ Georgia Southern or OpenICPSR.


Additional Tools
