ScholarWorks is a set of services offered by Duke Libraries to assist members of the Duke community with publishing and archiving their research, to ensure that it reaches the broadest possible audience for the longest possible period of time.

ScholarWorks was created and is maintained by the Duke University Libraries Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communication in collaboration with Duke Libraries Research and Instructional Services, Data and Visualization Services, and Digital Scholarship Services.

Who We Are

The Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communications assists the entire Duke community with copyright and legal issues, advocacy, and best practices for publishing.

David Hansen, JD, is the Director of the Office of Copyright & Scholarly Communications. He helps Duke librarians, faculty, and students understand and improve the scholarly publishing system. He tends to focus on copyright law and other legal issues that play a big part in that system, as well as the economics, incentives, and technology associated with publishing.





Paolo Mangiafico focuses on how new technologies can be adapted to further the knowledge-sharing mission of research universities. He was one of the leaders in the effort to adopt an open access policy for Duke scholarshipand works on services supporting new models for scholarly publishing and archiving research data.






Haley Walton coordinates scholarly communications outreach and advocacy on campus. She collaborates with faculty, students, researchers, and Libraries staff to support open access publishing, open data, and other open scholarship initiatives at the University. She helps the Duke community make their research freely available to a global audience using the DukeSpace repository and manages the University’s COPE fund.
