Expanding The Reach Of Research

Publishing, communication, and information exchange are all undergoing rapid change, at a time when innovative scholarship is opening up many new fields of study and techniques of inquiry. Scholars at the University of Minnesota and elsewhere are leading a variety of transformations in scholarly communication, and supporting sustainable publishing practices that expand the reach and impact of research.

We hope this site will help you:

"It is critical that published scientific articles resulting from work we do in health and biomedical research are made available to the public as quickly as possible to speed the application of our discoveries into knowledge. Open Access repositories such as the University Digital Conservancy are an important part of this process."

--Frank B. Cerra, Professor of Surgery, McKnight Presidential Leadership Chair, and Former Senior Vice President for Health Sciences and Dean of the Medical School
