Welcome to The Scholars Cooperative!

Welcome to The Scholars Cooperative blog!

The Scholars Cooperative aids, educates, and empowers the Wayne State community to advance the creation, distribution, and preservation of scholarship beyond traditional academic publishing models.  With this new initiative, The Wayne State University Library System offers you its Digital Publishing, Scholarly Communications, and Copyright services all under one roof.  We offer a wide range of services including education about important topics such as Open Access and authors rights;  consulting on copyright issues and becoming Open Access; and publishing services including journal publication and self- or mediated- archiving.

Did you know that Wayne State University has its own a freely accessible, open access, institutional repository, called DigitalCommons@WayneState (DC@WSU)?  Yes. It’s true.  It can be found here: DC@WSU.  This is where you can distribute your scholarship not only to the Wayne State community, but all over the world!  And this is at absolutely no cost to you!

Want to know more?  Feel free to contact us, we’re here, and happy to help you advance your scholarship!
