Scholarly Commons and SelectedWorks

Resources & Services to Support Access, Awareness, and Impact 

Open-access institutional repositories like Scholarly Commons and scholarly profile services like SelectedWorks provide researchers with opportunities to self-archive and distribute their research in new ways that increase access, awareness and impact.

As part of the library's overarching Scholarly Communication policies and support for faculty and staff, we offer a full array of repository-related resources.


Scholarly Commons

Scholarly Commons is an open-access digital repository that collects, archives, and disseminates the intellectual and creative output of the University’s faculty, staff, and students. Scholarly Commons hosts contributions from across the university, including faculty and student research, conferences and events, journals and magazines, research data, university documents and publications, and more. Learn how Scholarly Commons can support your research while extending its reach.


SelectedWorks Profiles

SelectedWorks Profiles feature ERAU faculty members' scholarly information and publications with features not available from other profile services. Works completed while you serve at ERAU are further archived in Scholarly Commons and are featured in our collections. SelectedWorks profiles are easy to set up and maintain. Send a current copy of your CV and a recent headshot to the Scholarly Communication Team and we will create a profile for you! Send in your updates anytime, or update your profile yourself.


Journals & Magazines

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University publishes open-access journals and magazines focusing on the topics of aerospace, aeronautics, security, education and highlighting our student and alumni achievements. We are committed to sharing the intellectual output of ERAU’s faculty, students and staff globally.
