We offer a variety of services, including the following:

  • Assistance with author agreements and book contracts
  • Copyright questions, including obtaining permissions for reuse of copyrighted materials 
  • Thesis and dissertation publishing support
  • Open access publishing

Our office also manages two digital repositories: OpenEmory, which features faculty scholarship, and Emory Theses and Dissertations, which contains all theses and dissertations by Emory graduate students from 2008 to the present.
