Obtaining an ETSU publication number

All publications produced for distribution outside ETSU (and certain publications that are not normally produced for outside distribution) are required to carry an ETSU publications number per state law which requires specific quality and cost monitoring procedures that relate to publications. This requirement applies regardless of state, grant, or private funding sources or where the job is produced. 

Any questions concerning criteria should be directed to Patricia Talley, editorial assistant, at 439-5317 or 

As a team, ETSU University Relations will work with you so that your publications will meet your needs while also being produced in a cost effective manner.
