FAU Libraries' Scholarly Communication Program
The FAU Libraries' Scholarly Communication Program (SCP) provides support to the FAU community by addressing the wide range of issues related to creating, evaluating, disseminating, and preserving the outputs of research and scholarship. Through educational programming and the addition of author and research services, the FAU Libraries will become a resource and guide to the evolving technologies, mandates, open access opportunities, and economic pressures of scholarly publishing.
