American University in Cairo Scholarly Communications


Community Overview

The American University in Cairo Scholarly Communications community provides open access to theses, research findings, publications, and presentations authored by students, faculty, and staff at AUC.

Benefits of Open Access

Publishing in Open Access repositories, such as DAR, offers a number of valuable benefits for students, faculty, and staff:

  1. 1. Increased citation of your work
  2. 2. Improved ranking and visibility in search engines
  3. 3. Persistent URLs so others can link to your work
  4. 4. Preservation of your work for future generations

For more information, visit the Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook. If you would like to submit published works, check your publisher's copyright policies at SHERPA/RoMEO.

Although we advocate Open Access, you may restrict access to your research housed in DAR for 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, or forever.
