ABOUT SCHOLARWORKS AT UMASS BOSTON
To visit the repository, click here.
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.
