Welcome!

The Mentoring & Support Network for MSMC Authors is a site designed to connect prospective authors with information and advice that will help them navigate the world of academic publishing.  It also provides information on faculty research interests to facilitate collaboration, especially across disciplines.

The Network is comprised of four elements, three of which can be accessed from the bar on the left.
  • The Mentors:  This is a list of MSMC faculty who are willing to help with aspects of the publishing process that they've had experience with, such as finding a publisher, working with co-authors, handling revisions, working with data, etc.  For each mentor, you'll find their contact information and the areas they're able to advise you about.
  • Faculty Research Areas:  Check this list to see what subject areas Mount faculty are working in.  Feel free to reach out to these faculty if you're interested in a possible collaboration or if you have questions about their research.
  • Resources for Authors:  Here you'll find links to services, articles, books, and other material that can shed light on the challenges and obstacles that sometimes confront scholarly writers.
  • Events (BELOW):  As we learn of events on campus that can help faculty and staff with their publishing efforts, we'll post them on this Welcome page, in the section titled "Events for Authors & Prospective Authors" below.

The Mentoring & Support Network is a project of the Faculty Library Committee.  The idea grew out of conversations over the past few years at the annual MSMC Authors' Luncheon. 

WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING TO ADD MENTORS, RESEARCH INTERESTS & HELPFUL RESOURCES!

If you have a suggestion or would like to be added to the Mentors or Research Areas lists, please contact any of the Library Committee members shown on the left.

Good luck with your publishing projects!  We look forward to hearing about the articles, chapters, and books that you'll be writing.
