Copyright consultations

Contact Scholarly Communications Office (SCO) staff to review your author agreements and book contracts. They also assist with questions related to permissions and fair use in scholarship and copyright exceptions in teaching. Contact the team directly at scholcomm@listserv.cc.emory.edu

Select a journal/research impact

Subject librarians can provide information on journals to aid with your selection of a publication that meets your professional goals and that is suitable for your manuscript. The "Impact Factor" is a statistical measure used to compare journals in a given field. Calculation is based on the average number of times articles published in a journal over the previous two years were cited in the current year.  Impact Factors are calculated for some 7000 journals in many fields and published each year as the Journal Citation Report.

In addition, contact the staff of the Scholarly Communications Office (SCO) to locate and evaluate an appropriate venue for publishing your article or book open access. They can also help you set-up your ORCID iD so that you properly get credit for everything you publish.

Open access

We can help you share your work with the global scholarly community and the public at large.

  • Make your research publicly available by submitting your works to OpenEmory, Emory's open access research discovery system for faculty works.
  • Apply for financial assistance through the Emory Open Access Publishing Fund, which can help pay publishing fees when other funding sources are not available.
  • Design and launch a digital open-access journal with help from the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) in choosing a publishing platform, adopting workflow tools, and setting up your editorial process. ECDS offers support for platforms like WordPress, Drupal and Omeka, and hosts two scholarly journals, Atlanta Studies and Southern Spaces.
