The Library can provide assistance for research dissemination and traditional publication support.

Where to Publish and How

There are many factors to consider when deciding where to publish your work: accessibility and citations, publication profile and impact factor, subscription and publication costs, and author rights. If you are having trouble choosing the right venue for your work, we'd be happy to provide some assistance.

Author Rights

As an author, you are also a copyright holder! It's important for you to know what rights you control for your work, and consider what rights publishers might need before signing any publishing agreements. Many publishing agreements require a complete transfer of copyright from you to the publisher, which means that you no longer have the ability to use your own work without permission.

If you are interested in retaining some or all of your rights to your work, we can assist you with interpreting and negotiating your publishing agreement.

Describing and Organizing Your Work

The ASU Library can also guide you on how to describe and organize your work as you prepare to publish. Get in touch with us for a consultation.
