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's important for authors to be able to self-archive our works, both on our own web sites and with the University Digital Conservancy. As a land-grant university, it is part of our mission to provide broad access to higher education, and its fruits, to all of society. We can also work with our professional associations to ensure that scholars retain the rights they need."

--Gary Balas, Distinguished McKnight University Professor and Department Head, Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics
