Information for Authors:

Author Rights - Retain your author rights by submitting an Author Addendum with your article submissions. This let the publisher know you want to retain your copyright of your intellectual property. It allows you to personally use the article information, and share it with others in the future. For more information on Author Rights checkout this detailed Library Resource Page.

Information about Publishing:

Open Access (OA) - Texas Woman’s University Libraries support Open Access(OA) by providing an Institutional Repository the University Community can submit scholarly work to. Repository@TWU has been working with Faculty and students to load articles and other scholarship they are working on along with loading Dissertations and Theses from graduates.

OA Models - There are several different ways in which articles can be placed in Open Access. Checkout this page for more information about publishing in Open Access.
