About Scholarly Commons

Scholarly Commons @ CWRU serves as Case Western Reserve University’s institutional repository. An institutional repository is an online archive that provides access to the scholarly output of any given institution. This repository includes scholarly content, such as journal articles, conference papers, chapters, books, reports, and more, produced by faculty, staff, and students, as well as university sponsored journals and events. Scholarly Commons is an open access repository, meaning that content is freely available to anyone across the world.

Scholarly Commons is administered by the Kelvin Smith Library with support from the campus libraries and features contributions from schools, departments, centers, and institutes from across campus.
