2009 University Publishing Consultants
University Publishing Consultants
Many universities have created new positions for scholarly publishing consultants who advise faculty on copyright and publishing matters. These consultants, usually based in the university library, help faculty understand the many alternatives for publishing today, including recent agreements for journal articles in which the author retains selected publishing rights such as self-posting and deposit in the university repository. While the focus at present remains on journals, these efforts reflect broad trends in scholarly communication that will clearly expand to affect books: the author as an active publishing partner, the university itself as publisher.
