UND has it's own institutional repository, which is a database containing intellectual works created by UND faculty, staff, and students. This database, the Scholarly Commons, is a website that is publicly accessible, or open access, meaning that anyone can access, read, and download the pdfs within it.
UND's Scholarly commons is a relatively new institutional repository, and the process for submission is evolving (especially during our current pandemic context). You currently have several options:
Library Resources has historically uploaded works created within the School of Medicine and Health Sciences on behalf of our students, faculty, and staff. Currently we are experiencing some staffing and workflow changes which are impacting our capacity to field submissions at this time:
1. We are happy to accept your submissions and add them to our queue to be uploaded in the near future.
2. If you have student workers, we can work together with the Chester Fritz Library to train your student workers to upload your department's projects directly onto the Scholarly Commons.
*we also reccomend that anything you upload to the Scholarly commons be licensed with a creative commons license to facilitate equitable access to and reuse of information. See the tabs at left for more info on Creative Commons licenses.
Please contact Devon Olson, Research and Education Librarian, or Jess Gilbert Redman, Online Resources and Services Librarian, within the SMHS Library Resources, if you have questions about submitting your work to the Scholarly Commons.
You can submit your work to be uploaded to the Scholarly Commons via the Chester Fritz library using this online submission form. Contact Zeineb Yousif, the Chester Fritz Digital Initiatives Librarian, about this process and the current timeline for submissions to be uploaded. Also see CFL's Scholarly Commons FAQ page for more information.
