Publisher copyright policies & self-archiving
Search the links below to determine the archiving policy for inclusion in Georgia State University Library's institutional repository - the ScholarWorks @ Georgia State University. The purpose of the archive is to collect, preserve, and provide access to scholarship produced by faculty, students and staff at GSU. You may deposit your articles, thesis, dissertation, conference presentations, class materials, and other scholarly output in the Digital Archive to make it freely available to researchers. Participation in the institutional repository is voluntary; this is a service that the library is providing to ensure long-term preservation of your work and to increase access to your work.
