Guide to understanding author rights and publishing, including publishing through Fordham

Scholarly Communication Research Support at Fordham University Libraries

The purpose of this research guide is to provide an overview of resources for faculty and graduate students to advocate for themselves within the scholarly publishing landscape to ensure their work is read by the widest possible audiences.

  • Fordham University Libraries offers research assistance on issues of digital publishing at Fordham, open access, evaluating journals, research data management, and a range of copyright issues including author rights.
  • Copyright compliance is your responsibility as a scholar. Librarians cannot provide legal advice regarding copyright compliance. If you need legal advice regarding copyright, please inquire with the Office of Legal Counsel.
  • Publishing norms differ across disciplines and academic departments. If you have questions about the publishing norms for your discipline or department, please reach out to your department chair or academic advisor.
