"We can't wait for the world to come to us; we must go to the world." Dr. Otto Gonzalez, 9/2016
At the 2016 International Programs Showcase Day, Dr. Otto Gonzalez, Director CIP, NIFA/USDA linked food security to land-grant universities engaging with the world.
Former USDA chief scientist Cathy Woteki has linked food security to open science (Buchanan p. 278).
Two recommendations below support food security and open science and the land-grant mission:
#1 "Publish where you want, and archive openly" (McKiernan et al 2016) supports researchers and the land-grant mission by making research accessible worldwide
How and why here: How open science helps researchers suceed eLife 2016;10.7554/eLife.16800 Erin C McKiernan, Philip E Bourne, C Titus Brown, Stuart Buck, Amye Kenall, Jennifer Lin, Damon McDougall, Brian A Nosek, Karthik Ram, Courtney K Soderberg, Jeffrey R Spies, Kaitlin Thaney, Andrew Updegrove, Kara H Woo,mTal Yarkoni

Author Rights Retention Kit--Read the Copyright Transfer Statement and negotatie publishers to retain the rights you need
Use the Author Rights Retention Kit to negotiate to retain more of your copyrights, if needed.
- Careful reading, consideration, and retention of the Copyright Transfer Agreement you enter into with a publisher should be part of the research workflow. It is a legally binding contract.
- The audience for your work is so much larger than you imagine!
- Retaining the right to preserve the publisher's pdf in the UTK TRACE archive and link to it from your ORCID page will make the work accessible to all who want to read and download it, and one reward for taking these simple steps that don't require much time is larger impact metrics for your work.
