Penn State University Libraries offers guidance for scholarly publishing to authors and editors within Penn State. We advise faculty and graduate students on author rights, copyright (including Creative Commons), fair use, and publishing contracts. We provide support for a range of scholarly publishing, including Open Access and the use of ScholarSphere.
The University Libraries also provides Open Access publishing opportunities for Penn State faculty, staff, and students through its publishing imprint, Libraries Open Publishing. This program supports the publication of journals, bibliographies, topical web portals, and other Open Access content.
