FAQ for Journals Authors, Editors and Contributors

Frequently asked questions:

Can I get a PDF of my articles?

There are several ways you can obtain a PDF of your article. If you or your institution subscribes to the journal online, you can download the file directly. If you do not have subscriber access, you can buy pay-per-view access to a single article through the journal's online home page. To see where your journal is hosted online, please see our titles. When sharing your work, always provide a link to your article rather than the PDF, as libraries use usage metrics to evaluate their holdings.

Can I post my article in an institutional repository?

Duke University Press publication agreements may grant the author the right to use the article for noncommercial purposes. This includes the right to post an article on a personal website or in an institutional repository. Please read the specific wording in the publication agreement that you signed. For journal articles, we allow posting of the final manuscript but not the published PDF. We also require that the repository provide a link to the final version of the article.

Do I get a discount on single issues or books as a contributor, special issue editor, or academic editor of a journal?

Contributors and special issue editors receive a 40 percent discount on single copies of the issue in which they appeared. Academic editors receive a 40 percent discount on single issues of their journal. There are no discounts available for book purchases by contributors, special issue editors, or academic editors. Peer reviewers also receive a discount.

How can I find out what marketing is being done for my journal?

How can I get my journal into bookstores?

In general, we have found it most effective for the editorial office or for a customer to request that a bookstore carry a journal. Information for bookstore contacts can be found on the Booksellers/Media area of our website.

How can I make a change/review my complimentary journal subscriptions?

To request a list of complimentary subscribers to your journal, or to make changes to the list, please contact customer relations.

How can I request marketing materials or get marketing support for a specific event?

Our materials are customized for each specific marketing effort. As we do not keep a stock of journal materials on hand, we rely on our editorial offices to let us know well in advance of any events in which they may be participating and for which they would like supplemental marketing materials or additional marketing support. To inquire about receiving marketing support for a specific event, please contact the journals marketing manager.
