Some of the benefits of depositing in Humboldt Digital Scholar:

Increased dissemination and impact of your research. HDS provides high visibility and increased access to your research. The descriptive information about your deposited works will be made available to Google Scholar (, OAISTER (, and other services. Some studies have shown that research and scholarship openly available on the web have increased impact and higher citation than research and scholarship that is not. See for a bibliography of studies on the impact of open access. Persistence and Preservation. HDS provides persistent, permanent urls to your digital research and makes a commitment to preserve your digital content. Control. When you deposit into HDS, you retain your copyright. Even if the work has been published many publishers will allow you to deposit your work into institutional repositories. Presentation and promotion of your research. Faculty may create a customizable page highlighting their research. You can link directly to this page.
