SOAR- SUNY Open Access Repository

Guide for faculty, staff, and students to add published materials and thesis projects into SOAR.

Overview

In order to share work in the open access repository authors must agree to a distribution license with SUNY and SUNY Oswego. This distribution license is non-exclusive, as authors can choose to distribute their work through multiple means available to them. All authors choosing to deposit their work must agree to this distribution license, which is found at the end of the submission form.

 

Please consult the text located below when deciding to deposit work into SOAR, and questions about the license can be directed to College Archivist Librarian Zachary Vickery.
