Institutional repositories provide an ideal medium for scholars to move beyond the journal article

Williams, Leyla S.; Pope, Kathryn H.; Luna Lucero, Brian

Institutional repositories (IRs) should actively collect the full range of work produced by scholars and researchers — not just “green” versions of peer-reviewed journal articles but student theses, data, working papers, blog posts, and more. In doing so, IRs become vital platforms that leverage the potential of the Web to reach a broader audience, bring new voices to scholarly discourse, and create opportunities for collaboration.
