About Touro Scholar
Touro Scholar is the institutional repository of the Touro University System. It collects and preserves the scholarly works of affiliated authors, promotes open access to these materials, and offers robust usage statistics including altmetrics. All content is fully discoverable with search engines such as Google Search, and is indexed via Google Scholar.
We encourage members of the administration, faculty, staff, and students (with faculty advisor approval) to contact us to deposit their work, via email at email@example.com. We are excited by the opportunity to check the publishing agreements and licenses of your works to ensure a legal and ethical version is posted full-text in the repository, if you choose to do so.
About Open Access
SPARC defines open access (OA) as "the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment." This concise definition encapsulates the values of a broad movement that is transforming how scholarship is created, disseminated, and preserved. Touro Scholar promotes open access through self-archiving of published works, also known as Green OA. Touro Scholar also hosts Open Educational Resources.
