Applying an Embargo or Removing an item

Applying an Embargo

If you are an author or creator who wants to submit work to ScholarWorks@UARK, but you cannot allow it to be publicly available for a specified period of time, you can impose an embargo. Simply mark the length of the embargo you prefer when you sign the author agreement.

*Please note that we may not accept work that can never be publicly available (that is, with a permanent or indefinite embargo).

Removing an Item

If you want to remove an item that you have already submitted, please contact the Institutional Repository Staff by email at

When an item is removed, the metadata (i.e., title, author, date, abstract) remains visible and searchable on ScholarWorks@UARK, along with a statement that the full content has been removed.
