Hope College Digital Commons is the college's institutional repository where faculty and student scholarship, as well as college publications and archives collection finding aids, digital collections, and oral histories, are stored and made accessible to the public. The Hope College Digital Commons repository runs on bepress' Digital Commons platform -- a hosted repository solution.
Use Hope College Digital Commons to find and download faculty publications, presentations, performances, and exhibits, student scholarship, and archives finding aids and digital collections.
Hope College's faculty bibliography, originally located on Hope College Digital Commons, is now available at the Records of Faculty Scholarship and Creative Performance. This site also provides information on how to submit citations to be included in the faculty bibliography.
Open Access Policy
Hope College faculty are asked to follow the college's Open Access Policy and submit peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings to Hope College Digital Commons. Please see the Open Access LibGuide for more information. This guide will also help determine what publishers will allow for deposit in the institutional repository.
Faculty are encouraged to submit other forms of scholarship in addition to peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings, including books, book chapters, performances, presentations, exhibits, and works of art.
Open Access Fund
The Van Wylen Library may be able to assist with article processing fees for open access journals. Visit the Open Access Fund site for information.
