ScholarWorks is the University of Massachusetts Boston's online institutional repository for scholarship and research.

ScholarWorks serves as a publishing platform, a preservation service, and a showcase for the research and scholarly output of members of the UMass Boston community.

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.

Open Access at UMass Boston

In October 2012, Faculty Council at UMass Boston approved a set of important motions focused on recent developments in scholarly communication and publishing in the digital age. These motions, which include the adoption of a campus-wide open access policy and the establishment of a Committee on Scholarly Communication, are available here. The final policies, amendments, and Guidelines for ScholarWorks, the institutional repository for scholarship and research out of UMass Boston, are below.
