Seeking Stories: Open Access Dissertations, Theses and Reports


The Graduate School and J. Robert Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library are celebrating Open Access Week 2022 by highlighting 10 years of Michigan Tech graduate student scholars sharing their work on Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech. Digital Commons is the University’s institutional repository. We want to include you in the celebration!

Publishing open access helps scholars access your work and share the results of your research globally. We can see how this process happens through the usage statistics available from the Digital Commons platform and the PlumX dashboard embedded in individual submissions. We can’t wait to share our findings!

We also want to hear from you. Do you have an open access story to share about your student’s work or an interesting connection you have made? We’re gathering photos and stories to share with the campus. Please share your photos (JPG and PNG) and stories by Friday (Sept. 9) with gradschool@mtu.edu to be included in our celebration of graduate student scholars at Michigan Tech.

Michigan Tech will celebrate Open Access Week 2022 the week of Oct. 17. We look forward to sharing more information with you about this milestone on our campus.
