Each year, the Henry Madden Library honors Outstanding Faculty Publications, the bold contributions to research, scholarship, and creative work made by the Fresno State faculty. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we recognize this year’s publications through an online exhibit with information on the selected publications and links to full text where available. 

Outstanding Faculty Publications are selected by each department to showcase work by their faculty deserving of special recognition. The selections include journal articles, books, book chapters, technical reports, and films, and reflect the wide variety of research interests across the campus. As in past years, the collaborative nature of Fresno State researchers is displayed, with many faculty co-authoring publications with colleagues within their department, across departments, and at other institutions, as well with Fresno State students and recent graduates.

The full list of the 2021 honorees and their publications can be downloaded in PDF here.

“Research, teaching and solving real-world problems complement one another. This work demonstrates how faculty contribute their expertise to their field and to our community, and manifests our faculty’s resolve to find solutions to complex issues, while dedicating themselves to teaching our students during an unprecedented challenging time.”

Interim Provost Xuanning Fu

Scholarworks is the California State University’s Open Access repository, where faculty can disseminate scholarly, creative, or instructional materials related to their work at Fresno State. 

The Library’s Open Access Publishing Fund provides support for publishing fees for faculty who wish to publish their work in Open Access journals.
