Faculty Publications



The CSUN Faculty Publications collection contains published articles, preprints, working papers, conference papers, and other research-based works submitted by their authors. Additionally, faculty are provided with individual collections within their departments' communities to archive their work. As part of our Scholar Spotlight program, CSUN Library ScholarWorks personnel sort through faculty-submitted CVs in order to secure permission for open-access archiving.
