What is "Scholarly Publishing"?

"Scholarly Publishing" or "Scholarly Communications" is defined by the Association of College and Research Libraries as "the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs."  

Scholarly publishing services in the Texas Tech University Libraries assist researchers in navigating this system, from research creation to dissemination of published scholarship:

  • The Office of Scholarly Publishing  supports faculty, students, and staff concerning new models of making scholarship available or communicating in respective fields. This can mean anything from open access publication models, federal agency policies, peer review processes, alternative impact metrics or academic social media platforms. Visit the Copyright, Impact and Open Access page for more information on these services.
  • Campus Publishing services provided by the library include affordable textbook publishing, open access journals, and ThinkTech. Visit the Campus Publishing page for more information on these publishing opportunities.
  • Digital Services provide additional assistance throughout the research lifecycle, including research data services, digital humanities, and digital collections. Visit the Digital Services page for more information.
