Learn About WesScholar

WesScholar is a suite of services and platforms that enables Wesleyan students, faculty, and staff to store and share their research data and other scholarly and creative outputs digitally. WesScholar is provided and supported by the University Library in partnership with Information Technology Services.

  • Why use WesScholar?

    Make it Open and Discoverable - Providing free access to information increases its discoverability and use.

    Make it Enduring - Permanent URLs (DOIs) build stable, long-term access to information. WesScholar mints DOIs when they are not provided by a publisher.

    Comply with Funders - Fulfill funders’ open access requirements by depositing data, publications, and other grant outputs.

  • Guidelines and Policies

    WesScholar accepts research data, scholarly and creative outputs, and their related information and materials in a variety of formats and file types. All submissions made to the repository must be in a digital format.

    Some formats and disciplines may be out of scope or capability for WesScholar. Wesleyan students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use the most suitable repository for their content and the University Library can help you to identify one.
