The A-CAPP Center is pursuing a comprehensive portfolio of publications through its research projects and outreach activities that are aimed at providing industry and governmental partners evidence-based lessons for preventing and responding to product counterfeiting and brand protection issues.

Integration with MSU partners, other academic partners, and industry and government professionals offers unparalleled expertise. Our publications benefit from the immediate access to a cadre of internationally recognized scholars and experts and fall into two main categories- research publications and outreach publications.


Our research publications are composed largely of traditional academic journal articles, scholarly reports, books, and the Center’s own Backgrounders and Paper Series.


Our outreach publications are composed largely of online articles in magazines, industry journals, and news outlets.
