For each faculty member who participates in SJSU ScholarWorks, the library also creates a faculty profile page on the SelectedWoks platform. Your SelectedWorks profile is linked to SJSU ScholarWorks, so the articles and other materials that the library uploads to SJSU ScholarWorks are also available from your profile. Over 500 SJSU faculty and staff members currently participate have SelectedWorks profiles linked to SJSU ScholarWorks.
SJSU ScholarWorks staff check the copyright and self-archiving policies for every item on your CV to determine which items we can make available to the public. We check for publisher policies in the SHERPA/RoMEO database, but we will also consult publisher websites and other sources to determine the applicable policy.
SJSU ScholarWorks staff may contact you to request a pre-publication version of a specific article such as the version you initially submitted to the publisher. These versions are commonly known as pre-prints. Publisher policies can be quite specific, so we may need to request a specific version in order to share your work on SJSU ScholarWorks while complying with these policies.
