tips and resources for navigating the process of academic publishing

Open Access Journal Publishing

At this time, neither ASU nor the ASU Library provides hosting or support services for journal publishing. However, the following resources may be useful.

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs)

ASU does not provide DOI registration. To create a DOI, you must go through a DOI Registration Agency, such as CrossRef or DataCite in the U.S. This DOI FAQ provides more detailed information about DOI registration and pricing.

Open Access Journals Published at ASU

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
