Ph.D. Fellowship in Scholarly Communication at Indiana University

The School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington seeks to recruit a cohort of four exceptional doctoral students with interest in issues related to scholarly communication for the IDEASc fellowship program, funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and hosted by the Department of Information and Library Science (ILS) and the University Libraries at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB). IDEASc – Integrated Doctoral Education with Application to Scholarly Communication – is a fellowship program designed to further scholarship and practice in the area of scholarly communication by integrating practical experience in the library with the research and classroom experiences that comprise the traditional education of doctoral students. Fellows will be provided with intensive mentoring, wide-ranging opportunities to work and conduct research in scholarly communication, and comprehensive training in pedagogy, curricular development, and in-class instruction. Our efforts are motivated by an awareness of the complex transformations of library roles in the scholarly communication environment and the increasing need to educate future LIS faculty with an integrated understanding of research and practice to meet the needs of future MLS students. 

Doctoral fellows will receive a stipend of $23,000, health insurance, tuition, travel assistance, and funding for publication in an open access journal for three consecutive years as part of this program. They will also have an opportunity to work in the library with experienced and innovative librarians and with leading faculty studying the diverse range of issues related to scholarly communication. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, digital libraries, scientometrics, intellectual property, metadata, social media metrics, university presses, data curation, digital humanities, scholarly publishing, institutional repositories, and copyright. Additional information can be found on the project website: http:info.ils.indiana.edu/IDEASc

Indiana University Bloomington is particularly well-situated to support this proposal given its campus-wide focus on issues of scholarly communication as well as the strengths of both the Indiana University Bloomington Libraries and the Department of Information and Library Science in this domain. This is a time of systemic change in how institutions create, sustain, and provide access to information, and libraries and LIS professionals are uniquely situated to influence the direction of this change. The project will graduate doctoral students who are not only familiar with issues of scholarly communication but will also, as leaders in the field, understand scholarly communication from the varying perspectives of practice, education, and research.

Applicants will need to apply to and meet the requirements for the ILS Ph.D. program. Information on the Ph.D. application process can be found on the departmental website (http://ils.indiana.edu/phd/). Students will additionally be asked to send their personal statement, writing sample, and CV/resume directly to Dr. Cassidy R. Sugimoto (sugimoto [at] indiana.edu). Applications should be received by January 1, 2015 for full consideration.
