Scholar@UPRM, the institutional repository of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (UPRM), is a space to preserve and provide access to the creative work and scientific production of the diverse projects that make up our research ecosystem.

DSpace is an open source repository package originally developed by MIT and HP Labs.

You can go to SHERPA/RoMEO to obtain information about the permissions that different journals grant to authors for depositing their published documents in repositories and other venues.
Scholar@UPRM collects and records the intellectual and creative work of our students, researchers, and faculty. It is a centralized space that grants access to the variety of projects that make up our research ecosystem. Original work such as theses, dissertations, technical reports, articles, videos, and other resources generated by our university community are just some of the resources that can be accessed.
Furthermore, it simplifies discovery of all these products from one platform, increasing the institution's local and international prestige by a gateway to the knowledge produced at UPRM.
In order to maintain consistency, the following format has been established and should be followed for the naming of files before they are deposited.
Sometimes immediate access cannot be granted to certain documents due to a variety of reasons, such as, a pending patent, possibility of future publication, sensitive security information or data protected by a nondisclosure agreement, among others. Hence, the repository has established an alternative for depositing these types of time-sensitive resources by keeping them under a limited-time embargo.
An embargo is a time-based restriction assigned to a document by the author that grants the user access to view only the bibliographic citation (author, title, abstract) of the document. The full text of the document remains hidden until the end of the assigned embargoed period.
