Scholarly Services

Scholarly Communications refers to the complex system of creation, dissemination, and use of the products of scholarship, both informal and formal, and the social, legal, and economic issues involved in those processes. Librarians can assist faculty and students in sharing their work, managing complex copyrights, and helping to learn more about the constantly shifting system of scholarly communication in which they are involved. The library offers repository and publishing services, provides education on copyright and authors rights, and creates resources that support these endeavors, such as VIVO (our institutional repository) and open access journals.



The library can help you to self-archive your manuscripts and materials in our institutional repository. To deposit something, email us.

The University of Idaho supports open access journal publishing by providing publishing services through Open Journal Systems. See our current journals here.

We provide resources on Copyright and Fair Use, Open Access resources, Author's Rights and more. For specific inquiries, contact the reference desk.
