Lisa Macklin

Emory University
Director, Scholarly Communications Office
Lisa A. Macklin joined Emory in 2005 and was appointed the first Director, Scholarly Communications Office (formerly the Libraries Intellectual Property Rights Office) in 2007. In this role she works with faculty, students, and staff on the application of copyright law to teaching, research, and publishing (see Emory Scholarly Communications for more information). Her interests include transformations in scholarship and publishing, including new models of scholarship in digital form and the Open Access movement.
Although her office is in the Robert W. Woodruff Library, Lisa works with faculty and students from across campus, and collaborated with the Library Policy Committee and the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence in Open Access Conversations at Emory. In March 2011, the Faculty Council endorsed an Open Access Policy that led to the creation ofOpenEmory, a repository of Emory faculty-authored articles. In addition, an Open Access Publishing Fund was launched with OpenEmory, and provides funds to make it easier for Emory authors to publish in eligible open-access (OA) journals and books when no alternative funding is available. Lisa continues working with faculty advisors as the Libraries implement these and other OA initiatives.
