DigitalCommons at UMaine provides access to the scholarly, educational, and creative works of the University of Maine community. It is coordinated by Raymond H. Fogler Library and is supported by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, the College of Education and Human Development, the Honors College, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Division of Lifelong Learning.
Fogler Library is working with the Advanced Computing Group to link scholarly articles in Digital Commons with the associated data archived in Maine Dataverse.
NOTE: The use of Digital Commons and the Dataverse Network to fulfill sponsor public access requirements is intended for instances when a sponsor gives its funded researcher the latitude to select a repository(ies) in which to store and disseminate her/his subject research results. This is most likely to be the case with private sponsors. Federal funding agencies are required by law to designate the repository(ies) to be utilized.
Because public access solutions vary by sponsor, researchers must pay close attention to proposal guidelines, award terms and conditions, and other sponsor-related communications to ensure they are complying with the requirements of their particular award. For more information about public access to the results of federally funded research please visit the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs' open access compliance page. Investigators also can consult the US Agency Public Access Plans webpage which provides an up-to-date list of, and links to, U.S. agency plans as they are published.
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs assists faculty and staff in seeking and managing research grants, contracts, and other extramural funding. ORSP serves as applicant, contract negotiator, and signatory authority for the University, and provides grant accounting services once an award is made. They provide some data management plan assistance, particularly around grant compliance.
Fogler Library points to a wide range of grants resources available at UMaine to support the research and data collection of faculty and students on campus. These include proposal writing resources, open access publishing options (including Digital Commons and Maine Dataverse), and powerful grantseeking databases. Grantseeking workshops take place throughout the year - contact Jen Bonnet with any questions.
