Emory's Open Access Repositories and Policy

To support open access to scholarship, the Scholarly Communications Office team manages two OA repositories: OpenEmory and Emory Theses and Dissertations. You will also find links to other OA repositories at Emory managed outside our office as well as information about Emory's Open Access Policy.


Created in response to the OA Policy, OpenEmory is an open access repository of scholarly works by Emory faculty, including journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, posters, presentations, and reports.
