Scholarly Communication

“In brief but often used terms, scholarly communication is the system of people, procedures, and tools through which the results of research and scholarship are registered, evaluated, disseminated, and preserved.”


—John Ober. Against the Grain 20, no.1 (February 2008)

During the next few weeks this site will be developed to include information about a variety of issues related to scholarly communication for both faculty and students. Topics will include copyright, fair use, DSpace (the Library’s institutional repository), and a step by step guide to open access publishing.

Please note: This site is not yet ready to support all parts of the Open Access policy. We are working to provide all the tools you might need.

Meanwhile, if you

  • Have questions
  • Need a waiver
  • Want to apply for help with Open Access fees
  • Want to submit an article to the Allegheny Repository (DSpace)
