Books, Journals & More supplement

This annual University Times supplement recognizes faculty and staff who have written and edited books, as well as those whose efforts have extended into other areas, such as CDs, electronic publications, art exhibitions, plays and musical compositions.

We regret that space constraints prohibit including other kinds of publications/creative endeavors. At the suggestion of a faculty advisory committee, we have included only items that were peer-reviewed: Self-published works are not included. We also have limited listings to complete works, because individual chapters or articles, poems and musical compositions would be too numerous.

Submissions are divided into three sections: Books, Journals & More. In all three sections, submissions are arranged according to school/unit, then listed alphabetically by title. In instances where there has been collaboration, the Pitt faculty or staff member is listed first.

Books, Journals & More was compiled by Barbara DelRaso from information submitted by faculty and staff members themselves.
