Publishing & Authorship
Sharing Your Work Online
Obtaining permission from your publisher to post an electronic version, even a pre-print, will assist you in sharing your work with students and colleagues. Publishers will often give specific usage rights; we suggest that you complete an author addendum, and attach it to the publisher’s contract.
- Digital Commons is a repository where faculty and students can post their research and scholarly works. Faculty can also request a Selected Works page where they can post a picture, biographical information, research and teaching interests, and scholarship. For more information, contact Scholarly Communication.
- Creative Commons (CC) “is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to making it easier for people to share and build upon the work of others, consistent with the rules of copyright.” CC is a helpful way to inform others of the permissible use of your works.
- Open Access (OA) Journals are freely available on the Internet and do not charge for access to their materials. OA Journals increase the availability and potential impact of your work.
