Digital Commons @ Butler

The Digital Commons @ Butler University is a valuable way to extend the scholarly output of Butler University to include greater reach and increased circulation not only in Indiana, but throughout the country and beyond. This increased visibility, awareness, and stability benefits both content creators and Butler University as well.

Our services include:

  • Copyright consultations
  • Helping with Copyright and License Agreements from your publisher. We can help you retain the most rights possible
  • Checking publisher copyright permissions for your published articles
  • Helping identify open access journals in your field

Digital Commons ensures that a copy of your work is preserved, so you’ll never need to track down your manuscript again! Digital Commons will also provide monthly readership reports which include statistics on the number of views, downloads, and social media shares your scholarship has created!

If you would like to deposit your scholarship in Digital Commons, review our Digital Commons Checklist and email us at digitalscholarship@butler.edu. Our Scholarly Communications Team will contact you with more information and for copies of your author manuscripts.
