Advanced Research and Publishing Services

Syracuse University librarians can assist faculty, students, and affiliated researchers, through personal consultation and classroom instruction, in the pursuit of scholarly activities such as conducting literature reviews, locating needed materials, preparing and formatting manuscripts for press, or assessing the research value of journals and articles. For more information on the research support, research data services, and author and publication support that SU Libraries provide for faculty, please visit the Research Services portion of our website.


Syracuse University’s faculty, students, and staff produce, distribute and share a wide range of works. University members may want to use their own works, or others' works, while pursuing goals for research, teaching, instruction, or scholarship.  For online faculty and instructors, and anyone who instructs online, understanding and adhering to copyright law is crucial to protect yourselves, the University, and your students. As educators, modeling appropriate and legal use of copyrighted materials is critical in helping students (and future educators) to better understand the complex issues surrounding copyright. SU Libraries offers guidance to faculty and instructors on how and when copyrighted materials can be used for instruction. For more information on understanding copyright, please visit our copyright guide or contact our copyright team at


SURFACE, the University’s open-access institutional repository, is a key service for sharing and preserving your work. It enhances access to Syracuse University’s scholarship on a global scale and increases its impact. SURFACE includes scholarly journal articles, books, dissertations, theses, conference proceedings, and more.
