About Institutional Repositories

Rowan Digital Works, a service of Rowan University Libraries, provides free, worldwide access to the scholarly, creative, and cultural works of Rowan University. Rowan University theses and dissertations have been uploaded as our first online collection, but a wide range of other digital works are also supported, including: journal articles and other publications produced by Rowan University faculty; materials from University archives and special collections; research datasets; creative and artistic works; and more.

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, technical reports, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.
