Publishing and Author Rights

We are not lawyers, but the Scholarly Communication, Copyright, and Publishing Program Librarians are available to consult with you as you navigate publisher licensing agreements, Creative Commons, and open access journal submissions. Please contact:

Barbara DeFelice, Program Director
