ScholarWorks is a set of services offered by Duke Libraries to assist members of the Duke community with publishing and archiving their research, to ensure that it reaches the broadest possible audience for the longest possible period of time.

ScholarWorks was created and is maintained by the Duke University Libraries Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communication in collaboration with Duke Libraries Research and Instructional Services, Data and Visualization Services, and Digital Scholarship Services.

Who We Are
