ScholarWorks@Georgia State University is the university’s institutional repository and a resource for our scholarly community. Institutional Repositories contain scholarly and creative works, research, publications, data, working papers, reports, and presentations contributed by faculty, students, and staff. ScholarWorks is also the home of theses and dissertations completed at Georgia State, by both graduate students and undergraduate students in the Honors College.
Adding works to ScholarWorks makes them widely accessible and easily findable. ScholarWorks is open access, so content can be accessed by anyone, no payment or subscription required. This supports the spread of knowledge and the reputation of researchers and the university. Potential students or collaborators can read work by faculty and students at Georgia State, and find colleagues and mentors to help advance their own research and study.
ScholarWorks provides detailed analytics to authors showing how often content is downloaded, what search terms led to the content, and from where those readers were searching.
A non-exclusive license is the only requirement from an author to post his/her work in ScholarWorks. We will, on the behalf of the author, seek the necessary permissions from publishers in those instances where a copyright transfer agreement limits the author’s ability to freely share the work.
To date there are over 2.8 million downloads from ScholarWorks, and that number grows daily.
