About UWM Digital Commons

UWM Digital Commons is a virtual showcase for UWM’s research and creative profiles, administered by the UWM Libraries. Members of the UWM academic community are encouraged to contribute scholarship for long-term preservation and worldwide electronic accessibility.

Including work in the UWM Digital Commons provides the scholar with institutional recognition. Work is placed in the university context, side-by-side with the scholarly and creative contributions of one’s colleagues. The work is assured a stable, visible online location that is searchable and citable. Submitting work may also address the data-sharing requirements of some grants. UWM Digital Commons offers citation services, as well as the possibility to create a journal.

A wide range of digital material can be placed in UWM Digital Commons, including, but not limited to, video files, articles and preprints, technical reports, dissertations and theses, practicum and capstone projects, audio files, working papers, conference papers and presentations, out of copyright books in digital format, and data sets.
