Scholarly Visibility & Impact

How to make a case and create a narrative around the scholarly contributions that are most valuable to you in academic evaluation.

Make Your Work Open

We encourage you to share your work widely.  IUScholarWorks and IUScholarWorks Open, IU's open access institutional repositories, are venues where you can share new or previously published articles, course materials, newsletters, posters, presentations, technical reports and audio-visual material. We are committed to long-term preservation, and work deposited in UScholarWorks and IUScholarWorks Open is indexed by Google Scholar.

Open Access Publishing Agreements

IU Bloomington Libraries has negotiated several agreements with publishers for free or discounted open access publishing to support researchers in sharing their scholarly output. We believe that accessible, transparent research, and respect for author's rights are critical elements of modern scholarship. To learn more about open scholarship at IU Bloomington, visit our Open Scholarship website and Open Access LibGuide.
