Benefits of Open Access
Publishing in Open Access repositories, such as DAR Repository, offers a number of valuable benefits for students, faculty, and staff:
- Increased citation of your work
- Improved ranking and visibility in search engines
- Persistent URLs so others can link to your work
- Preservation of your work for future generations
Although we advocate Open Access, you may restrict access to your research housed in DAR Repository for 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, or forever.
