Publishing your work in an open access repository is an additional way to share your research. Remember to comply with copyright and licensing restrictions when when publishing in a repository see our Guide to Copyright for more information. Repositories are institutional, like Our Scholars' Mine, or discipline-specific.
Sharing data is becoming increasingly important in research and is often mandated by funding agencies. Many discipline-specific repositories are both open access and accept research datasets.
Every publisher has differing policies regarding self-archiving and your continued use of your published work. This SHERPA/RoMEO database provides a searchable collection of publisher policies--check here first when deciding where to publish. Additional information about copyright is also available in our Library Guide to Copyright.
