The SOURCE Fall Expo will showcase outstanding undergraduate students presenting their in-depth research, scholarly and creative work, and will facilitate engaging conversations about fascinating topics. The entire campus community is invited to attend and celebrate the exciting research and discovery of our undergraduate students!
The full schedule of presenters is available online.
Let’s continue the conversation! Systematic reviews, scoping reviews, meta-analyses, and other types of evidence synthesis studies continue to grow in popularity and importance. If you’re currently publishing systematic reviews or other evidence synthesis publications or would like to learn more about this type of research, the Libraries’ Research Impact Team is launching a community of practice around this topic. This will be the second meeting of this group, new and returning attendees are welcome. Please join us and bring your ideas, questions, and a friend! Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
Join the Office of Research Development (ORD) and the Syracuse Center of Excellence (SyracuseCoE) for an information session for the OPEN funding opportunity from Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), anticipated to be released in the coming months.
This funding opportunity is anticipated to provide at least $100 million to fund 30-50 high-risk R&D projects that are targeted to enable development of potentially disruptive new technologies across the full spectrum of energy applications.
ORD will provide an overview of ARPA-E, the scope of R&D funded under past OPEN programs, an anticipated timeline for the program, and the proposal support available to applicants. ECS faculty members Senem Velipasalar and Bing Dong will discuss their experience working on successful projects with ARPA-E. SyracuseCoE will share resources that are available to assist applicants with proposed projects. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their project ideas, in an effort to establish collaborative projects.

While the conversations (and funding) for OA have primarily focused on journals and the STEM disciplines, OA book publishing options for humanities disciplines are expanding in university presses across the globe.
What is “open access publishing?” Is open access right for me as an author? How do I cultivate relationships with presses? What should I ask my publisher? How do I advocate for open access support at my institution? What do editors think about our open access future?
Join us for a lively conversation with leading OA publishers to get answers to these questions! Participants will also benefit from hearing insider perspectives on developing OA programs within the world of academic publishing and the future of open access.
