Our goal is to help you reach yours.


The Office of Scholarly Communications provides workshops on a variety of topics including

  • Publishing journal articles
  • Preparing a book proposal and finding a publisher
  • Understanding a publishing agreement
  • Copyright and fair use for authors

As the leader of these workshops, Melody Herr shares more than 16 years of experience as a publishing professional and writing coach as well as her own expertise as a scholar and author.

The Office of Scholarly Communications also hosts the institutional repository ScholarWorks@UARK, a showcase for the research, scholarship, and creative work of the U of A community. We welcome you to participate, and we would be happy to assist you with depositing your work.
