Services for Authors at the Penn Libraries


The responsibilities of librarians are ever-evolving, but have always included the identification, evaluation, and promotion of reliable scholarly resources. University of Pennsylvania librarians have an exhaustive familiarity with the reputation and reach of resources across the disciplines, and are familiar with tools to measure and make visible the impact and significance of journals, publishers, and scholars. If you need assistance identifying publication opportunities, want to learn more about how to promote and publicize your scholarship to the widest possible audience, or need to preserve your research data to comply with funding requirements, a Penn librarian may be able to provide these and other author services. 

This guide contains information about some of the most significant scholarly publishing interests, along with links to information and services on related topics. Contact your school or departmental library liaison for more information or with specific requests.
