What is scholarly communications?
Scholarly communications speaks to the systems and services surrounding scholarly research and writing. It covers the creation, preservation, dissemination, evaluation, and accessibility of scholarly products in a variety of formats.
GW Libraries provides resources and services to assist scholars throughout the scholarly research process. These resources and services have been identified in the navigation menu to the left. Additional services and resources are also available across GW, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
