What is an Institutional Repository (IR)?
An institutional repository (IR) is an online archive for collecting, preserving, and disseminating digital copies of the intellectual output of an institution. IRs help ensure that this intellectual work is preserved and available to the public.
Where do I find the Maritime Institutional Repository?
The Maritime Institutional Repository is located HERE. It is part of the SUNY Digital Repository (DSpace).
Why should I submit my work to the IR?
Once published in the IR, your work will be:
- More discoverable by search engines such as Google, Google Scholar, and Bing
- Hosted on a secure server and given a persistent URL to ensure long-term access
- Freely accessible to the public, including researchers around the world who may have limited access to scholarly works
- Part of a dynamic repository of Maritime scholarship
How do I submit my work to the IR?
Whenever you publish a new work, simply fill out the form and we will be in touch. If you'd like to include older scholarship in the repository, simply email us your CV and we'll follow up.
How do know if I have the rights to publish my work in the IR?
Scholarly Communications Librarian Annie Tummino will help determine your rights. The SHERPA / RoMEO database is a good place to start. Many publishers allow for institutional archiving (also called "Green Open Access") even when copyright has been signed over to the publisher.
