The purpose of DigitalCommons@UMaine is to provide long-term access to the scholarly and creative output of University of Maine faculty and staff. Consult this suite of tutorial pages to learn how to archive your work.
Self-archiving in UMaine's Institutional Repository helps you manage your professional reputation, increases your scholarly impact, and creates a long-term legacy for your academic contributions.
Self-archive only full-text work that can be made openly available. Many publishers now allow university scholars to post full-text copies of the author's accepted manuscripts (if not the publisher's version) in an open access institutional repository. For some published works, permission to post full content must be sought.
