This article will discuss the issue of copyright ownership to a scholarly work that is written by a university faculty member. The analysis will include a general discussion of copyright law, including the work for hire doctrine, the development and applicability of the common law exception to the work for hire doctrine for academic writings, whether a university professor publishing a scholarly article is "within the scope of employment," web page publishing issues for professors who want to put their papers online and a discussion of the most practical strategies for professors who want to claim copyright ownership to their scholarly works.
