Open access institutional repositories like ScholarWorks @ Georgia State University have the progressive goal of democratizing information access but are also fully compatible with traditional scholarly practices such as peer review, citation, and intellectual property.
Scholarworks @ Georgia State University includes scholarly and creative works, research, publications and reports contributed by the faculty and students of Georgia State University. The institutional repository is administered by the Georgia State University Library in cooperation with individual departments and academic units of the University.
