We offer a suite of services for your scholarly communication endeavours.  We provide support towards

  • digital scholarship, the use of digital tools in academic research, teaching and learning.

  • use of research metrics and measuring of research impact.
  • sharing and depositing of datasets and scholarly outputs into ScholarBank@NUS.

It’s time to publish your paper and there’s so much to consider. Which journal to select? Should you publish in Open Access? How much is the Article Processing Charge (APC)? How to protect your rights as an author? How to enhance visibility of your works?

No worries, we’re here to assist. Consult our specialists to help you shortlist journals based on journal metrics, publisher’s copyrights restrictions and their Open Access archiving policies. And don’t forget to check out our deals on discounted APCs with selected publishers and societies. Last but not least, we also provide advice on suitable Creative Commons license to apply so you can retain your author’s rights.


Need help in understanding or retrieving the various author-level, article-level or journal-level metrics? Or looking for expertise in compiling your metrics for peer benchmarking, performance appraisal and grant applications? We're happy to assist you. We provide advice to the NUS community on research metrics and the various sources and platforms used to measure research impact. We also run customised workshops to increase the awareness of research impact metrics and its proper use in NUS.


More information on the definitions, sources of metrics and proper use of these metrics can be found in our guides. Get in touch with us if you need any advice or assistance.
