Benefits of Open Access

Publishing in Open Access repositories, such as DAR Repository, offers a number of valuable benefits for students, faculty, and staff:

  1. Increased citation of your work
  2. Improved ranking and visibility in search engines
  3. Persistent URLs so others can link to your work
  4. Preservation of your work for future generations

For more information, visit the Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook. If you would like to submit published works, check your publisher's copyright policies at SHERPA/RoMEO.

Although we advocate Open Access, you may restrict access to your research housed in DAR Repository for 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, or 2 years.


Deposit Administrative Records in the DAR Repository

In addition to providing access to the scholarly pursuits of students, faculty and staff at AUC, the DAR Repository supplements the university's Records Management program, which assists administrative offices in identifying and preserving documents required for administrative, legal, financial, or historical purposes. The DAR Repository supports electronic recordkeeping practices by allowing administrative offices to deposit files with long-term value in a safe, online archive. Working with the DAR Repository offers a number of valuable benefits for administrative offices:

  1. Improved ranking and visibility in search engines
  2. Persistent URLs so others can link to your administrative records
  3. Preservation of administrative records for future generations

Currently, more that 20 offices cooperate with the DAR Repository to preserve electronic records, including annual reports, catalogs, assessment plans, and other administrative records.
