In some cases, the publisher's version of your work cannot be placed in Scholars' Mine but a preprint or post-print/accepted manuscript is permissible. An article in Scientific American provides more information about this.

The Library will use the information you provide to update your faculty profile. You may be contacted about the categories you wish your research to be grouped in and how best to describe your research interests. You will have the option to manage and edit your profile or allow the library to manage it for you.  Your profile belongs to you even if you leave Missouri S&T.
