Authors' Rights

Most academics engage in both teaching and research. Both are intimately tied to communications, and in particular to the patterns of scholarly communications that have developed over the past century. We're all familiar with the process of faculty authors producing research articles, peer-reviewed journals vetting the scholarship and distributing it, and libraries organizing, archiving, and making it available to other scholars and students as the foundation on which new knowledge is built.

If you have questions about authors' rights or other scholarly communication issues, contact your Subject and Area Librarian or the Digital Scholarship services at
