Scholarly Publishing Teahouse

Hello LaGuardia faculty,

While the Library is working to support your students, don’t forget that we’re still here for you as well. The Library’s Scholarly Publishing Teahouse is offering Scholarly Publishing Office Hours—faculty can virtually drop in to ask those questions they need answers to. You might want to know what a Creative Commons license is, whether a journal you’ve found is one of those “predatory journals,” or how to find a journal to publish in to begin with. We’ll take on all your questions and help you find answers. We also offer other events such as Publishing Tea Breaks, quick chats on academic publishing topics, and Writers' Tea Breaks, which are times to set a date for your writing.



View the Scholarly Publishing Teahouse schedule below. We also link to the schedule and have office hours information on the Faculty section of the Library’s Help from Home guide. To chat with a Librarian during virtual office hours, you can initiate a chat with them in Google Hangouts. Our email is Within Hangouts, you can invite us to chat, or email us with your gmail address and we can send an invite to you.


If Google Hangouts or the time offered each week isn't convenient, you can email us with your questions. Or email to request an invite to join our Slack channel at for group discussion of scholarly publishing questions and issues. Browse our past posts and discussion to see if there’s some helpful information there for you. You can also direct message a librarian in Slack with your questions.


We look forward to assisting you with your scholarly publication efforts.


Stay healthy and happy publishing,
