Resources for authors and editors of works of scholarship

Improving your writing

Saving snapshots of web resources you cite

  • Perma.cc allows an author or editor to take a snapshot of a Web resource and cite that snapshot instead of its original URL.
  • You can have the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine take a snapshot on demand through Save Page Now.
  • You can use the Robust Links tool to take a snapshot in a web archive in a way that the link will fall back to another web archive if the first one is unavailable.

Sharing your work

You may already know journals and publishers that peers in your field use to share their work. However, many conventional publishers require that you sign an author agreement in which you either transfer your copyright to the publisher or grant an exclusive license of your work. In either case, you may end up being unable to legally share your work with your students and colleagues, republish it in an edited collection, or revise it for a later publication. For more information, see the author's rights section of the UNT Libraries' Copyright Quick Reference Guide.

The UNT Libraries' Copyright Advisory Services can review a publisher's agreement with you and explain how to use the SPARC Addendum to  secure rights not included in a publishing agreement .

Here are some other resources on authors' rights from the Authors Alliance.

Are you considering a journal or publisher, but are unsure about it? Think. Check. Submit.
