What are the benefits of putting scholarly and creative works in the repository?

The repository provides an optimal place for archiving UNH scholarship for long-term access, promotes authors’ rights to control their intellectual property, and encourages Open Access to research.

Depositing your publications in the Scholars’ Repository can increase the discoverability of your research, drive more traffic to the published version of your paper, and result in higher citation rates.

For works that are not published elsewhere, the Scholars’ Repository provides stable urls and structured metadata to make sure your research outputs are readily available to the public and remain searchable and accessible far into the future.
