Include your scholarship in FDP

Lavery Library keeps copies of faculty publications in our College Archives. We make every effort to purchase all books written by or containing chapters, etc., written by faculty during their time at Fisher, and often place those in our circulating collection as well. We work with publishers to obtain permission to post versions of your scholarship, such as articles, on your behalf. In the event we are unable to include a version of your work in FDP, we will include citation information and a link to the publisher version so you may still receive usage statistics reports.

Why include your work in FDP?

  • Increase visibility of your scholarship and creative works
  • Preserve access to content through a permanent link
  • Promote open access principles:
    • Scholarly communication depends on access to research
    • Sharing your work encourages others to share
    • Providing direct access to articles and other content for users around the world improves opportunities for knowledge exchange
  • Receive and share monthly download reports to monitor usage and citations to your work (for more information about monthly download reports, refer to the Author Dashboard Statistics page of this guide)
  • Advance Fisher's academic reputation
  • Promote your scholarship
  • Opportunity to learn more about intellectual property, copyright, and author rights
