Scholarly Communication at ERAU

Research 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 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 are easy to set up and maintain.

A new profile system is being launched later in 2024.  If you need a profile page, or want to update your SelectedWorks Profile, contact us by January 19, 2024.
