Publishing Your Work

Publication Assistance

If you're looking to submit an article manuscript, consult our comprehensive guide to choosing a publication venue: Journal Publication Information.

UNC has money set aside to support fees associated with publication; faculty can apply to the Fund for Faculty Publications.

Consider Your Rights Before You Select or Sign

Copyright law provides you with rights; don't sign an agreement with a publisher until you read this guide: Your Rights as an Author

Consider Open Access

Are you an author on a mission?  Do you want your work to have high-impact, and to be read by those whom it could benefit the most? Consider an OPEN publishing venue.  These links explain the concepts of Open Access and Open Educational Resources:  OA and OER

The following journals are hosted at UNC and are examples of open-access publications:

Choose a reputable, high-quality open-access publisher and avoid Predatory Journals.
