Manuscript Preparation

The Ina Dillard Russell Library offers many services to assist you in your scholarly publishing endeavors. Did your peer review suggest you expand your literature review? Consider using the Library’s research tools to find more sources. Do writing and editing have you stumped? The Library can help you find your way to copy editors, freelance indexers, and bibliography assistance.

Author Rights

If you are planning to publish an article, the Ina Dillard Russell Library has tools you can use to protect and license your own work. The ability to share your work freely, particularly data associated with a research study, may increase the likelihood that it will be cited later on. Let us help you along the path through the complex forest of copyright law!

Broaden Your Impact

In order for scholarly work to have its intended impact, it must be discoverable, usable, and citable. Consider submitting to an open-access journal. Studies suggest that articles available freely online are more likely to be discovered, read, and cited later on. The librarians at the Ina Dillard Russell Library can assist you in choosing the venue with the most impact for your scholarly work.
