Dr. Howard's work has been featured in numerous journals and publications (see below for selective bibliography).

Her groundbreaking book Standing in The Shadow of Giants: Plagiarism, Authors, Collaborators surveys theories of authorship from Classical studies to the present and considers the range of responses, productive and punitive, to perceived instances of plagiarism.
