The University of Arkansas Open Access Repository Policy (Academic Policy 1220.00) lays out your rights and responsibilities when you share your research, creative work, and teaching materials in ScholarWorks@UARK. Please review this policy and the author agreement (below) before submitting your work.
If you want to submit a paper that has been published, please check your publishing agreement to find out which version – if any – you are permitted to post in an open access repository. Library personnel can provide consultation, but we cannot give legal advice.
