An unpublished work is one that has not undergone publication, and thus is not generally available to the public, or for citation in scholarly or legal contexts. In some cases unpublished works are widely cited, or circulated via informal means. It may also refer to an author who has not yet published a work.

It may also refer to:

  • Non-publication of legal opinions (unpublished opinions)
  • Summary order (unpublished order)

Famous quotes containing the word unpublished:

    The true colour of life is the colour of the body, the colour of the covered red, the implicit and not explicit red of the living heart and the pulses. It is the modest colour of the unpublished blood.
    Alice Meynell (1847–1922)
