About Open Scholarship
Launched in March 2012, Open Scholarship provides access to the scholarly output authored by the faculty, students, and staff of Washington University in St. Louis.
The current focus of Open Scholarship is on electronic theses and dissertations, undergraduate honors theses, and articles and other research by faculty, including openly available versions of articles submitted to peer-reviewed journals. The Open Scholarship site is also a platform for hosting open-access online journals based in the Washington University community.
The Open Scholarship portal strives to enhance the discoverability of repository content beyond what the original publisher provides and to showcase scholarship created in our academic community.
