Student Work In Scholarworks

At present these are generally 3 ways for students to submit and share their research and scholarship in ScholarWorks.

  1. Theses and Dissertations, once students have completed the submission process to ProQuest, are harvested into ScholarWorks and, depending on a students wishes are made available on the site to campus users (in ProQuest, called "Traditional Publishing") or to users around the world (in ProQuest, called "Open Access"). Explore theses and dissertations available in ScholarWorks.
  2. Graduate Capstone Projects are often produced in lieu of a masters thesis or dissertation. If you would like to submit your capstone project to ScholarWorks, please explore the Capstone Projects pages within the appropriate department or program in ScholarWorks, speak with a representative in your department or from Graduate Studies, or contact us.
  3. Conferences and Journals in ScholarWorks are great ways for students to showcase their research, scholarship, and program-related creative works. In 2011, the Graduate Studies Association launched a page in ScholarWorks to show excerpts from their annual graduate student showcase conference, Interdisciplinary Perspectives. Students also have the option, with the support or faculty members, to create Journals that will be published and made freely available to the public via ScholarWorks. For more information, contact us.

If you have any questions, please contact us by emailing or by calling 617-287-5944.
