About The Research Repository @ WVU

The Research Repository @ WVU is West Virginia University's open access institutional repository. A service of the University Libraries and the WVU Office of Research, the Research Repository provides an online home for the scholarship, creative work, and research of the University's faculty, students, and researchers.

The repository can be used to share working papers, copies of published articles, datasets, conference papers, posters, presentations, theses and dissertations, and digital projects. Work that is shared through the repository is openly available worldwide, which increases its reach, and potential impact.

Authors who submit their work will receive monthly reports that contain download statistics. They also have access to an Author Dashboard, which provides real-time usage information and a readership distribution map, which shows where their work has been downloaded.
