Self-archiving in UMaine's open access, institutional repository helps faculty, students, and staff manage their professional reputations, increase scholarly impact, and create a long-term legacy for their academic contributions. Additionally, many Federal agencies now requireMaine Dataverse Network for big data archiving while DigitalCommons@UMaine provides open access to published research findings.
Members of the UMaine community may self-archive only full-text work that can be made openly available online. Many publishers now allow university scholars to post full-text copies of an author's accepted manuscript (if not the publisher's version) in an open access, institutional repository.
For some published works, permission to post full text content must be secured in writing. Please refer to our information regarding Copyright Retention and the process of checking for and obtaining Copyright Permissions. If you have questions about copyright permissions, please contact your Subject Specialist for assistance.
The institutional repository includes the intellectual and creative output of University of Maine faculty, student, and staff. It houses University of Maine institutional archives and publications and primary research materials from Fogler Library Special Collections. Additional information is available in the Digital Commons Collection Policy.
