MOspace at MU: Why MOspace?

Benefits of MOspace

An institutional repository, like MOspace, is one of the best ways to disseminate and preserve your work.  As an open access tool, MOspace enhances collaboration efforts and ensures that current and future generations of scholars benefit by finding your work.  MOspace may also be a viable part of a data curation plan, as required by several funding agencies. 

MOspace is:

  • a free service
  • a permanent home for your work
  • full-text searchable
  • crawled by Google, GoogleScholar, and more

MOspace also provides you with a persistant (i.e. permanent) URL so you can cite it in perpetuity, with no worries about access.

Authors retain copyright to any item deposited in MOspace; the required license for deposit into MOspace acknowledges your rights as the copyright owner.  If your work has already been published, MOspace staff will check the publisher's policies for deposit into MOspace for you.
