About Institutional Repositories
The Winthrop University Digital Commons serves as a space to showcase the intellectual scholarship of the Winthrop Community. Our goal is to provide open access to our patrons around the world.
Digital Commons @ Winthrop is a digital repository and publication platform designed to collect, preserve, and make accessible the academic output of Winthrop University faculty, students, and staff. It is the mission of the Digital Commons @ Winthrop to facilitate the discovery of scholarly communications, provide instant access to full text works, and preserve these materials in an open, digital environment. The Digital Commons@ Winthrop also serves as the institutional repository of the university and Louise Pettus Archives.
Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.
IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.
