The Authors Alliance Partner Program (A2P2) is a new subscription option for organizations. By joining A2P2, organizations can leverage our expertise in copyright, open access, publication contracts, and getting rights back in order to expand the capacity of library and scholarly communications professionals to serve faculty, researchers, and students. Together, we can help authors manage rights throughout their careers and improve the availability and discoverability of knowledge and culture.

Why Join A2P2?

  • Save time and increase your capacity to provide up-to-date, reliable, and consistent rights management education to authors with our teaching and learning resources.
    • “Workshops in a box” that contain everything you need to prepare for and deliver workshops on topics that help authors manage rights throughout their publishing lifecycle, from negotiating for author-friendly terms in a publication contract to getting rights back.
    • Webinars and other professional development resources to support your training activities. 
    • Curated collection of third-party materials that form a one-stop shop for trusted training and curricular resources.
