Why Contribute to JMU Scholarly Commons?

As an institutional repository, JMU Scholarly Commons is a hub to showcase your research and scholarship from your time at James Madison University. Contributing your work to JMU Scholarly Commons will greatly increase the discoverability and accessibility of your work. The benefits of contributing your work to JMU Scholarly Commons are:

  • Increased visibility of your work through search engine optimization, including Google Scholar and major search engines.
  • Increased accessibility of your scholarship through unique, persistent URLs that will eliminate the concern of “dead links” on other web sites.
  • A centralized location for all of your scholarship – both published and unpublished, as a compliment to existing print and electronic publications. Supplemental content can be uploaded to provide additional information and context.
  • Ability to create reports to indicate timely impact of your work, including views, downloads, and how your work was found.
  • Ease of publicizing your work through mailing lists, social media buttons, and RSS feeds.
