The Ross-Blakley Law Library is the central point for the distribution and preservation of the faculty scholarship of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. There are two primary ways for faculty to publish their scholarship online.
The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law Faculty Scholarship Repository provides easy access to the scholarly works of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law's faculty. The repository is designed to capture the scholarly output of our faculty in a form that features excellent organization, permits subject and keyword searching capability and offers full text access. Links to HeinOnline, Westlaw, LexisNexis and SSRN are included where available for each of your publications. If you have retained the intellectual property rights to your articles, we can also post the full text of your articles directly on the repository.
Law school policy encourages all faculty to publish their scholarship on SSRN. SSRN was founded in 1993 in order to create a way for scholars to share their work and research before their papers worked their way through the long publication process. SSRN objectives are to provide worldwide distribution of research, facilitate communication between scholars, researchers, and other users.
The Law Library maintains a web page to assist you in submitting works to the repository and SSRN: How to Submit Works For Publication to the Faculty Scholarship Repository and SSRN.
Current faculty scholarship is on display in the foyer of the Ross-Blakley Law Library. We ask that you send your librarian liaison a copy of each of your recently published articles and books. Upon receipt, your item will be added to the display case. Upon removal, the item will be returned to the faculty member author or be placed in the library collection.
For questions concerning the Faculty Scholarship Repository, SSRN, or the Faculty Publications Display Case, please contact Leslie A. Pardo at 480-965-3579.
