Reputation and Scholarship
Rowan Digital Works, a service of Rowan University Libraries, provides free, worldwide access to the scholarly, creative, and cultural works of Rowan University. Scholarship and creative works hosted by institutional repositories have global impact. Faculty and researchers—especially those seeking tenure—may upload article preprints and other eligible content to showcase the impact of their work, identify where and how many times their work has been downloaded, and exactly how many times it has been accessed to support others’ research.
Exposure for Rowan University
Rowan Digital Works is indexed by Google, allowing researchers to easily discover the work of faculty, as well as their affiliation to Rowan University, through a simple Google search. This increases visibility for both faculty members and Rowan University, attracting the very best students and new faculty to our growing community.
