Our Mission

The Scholarly Communication Department at IU Bloomington Libraries supports researchers in sharing and preserving the output of their scholarly work in all forms and at all stages in the research process. We believe that accessible, transparent research is critical to modern scholarship and are dedicated to supporting these principles within the IU community.

Our Services

Across all IU regional campuses, we offer impact/metrics consultations, data management services, an open journals publishing platform, and OER consultations. We also manage three repositories: IUScholarWorks, IUScholarWorks Open, and IU Data Core.


For IU Bloomington affiliates, our department offers assistance with open access policy compliance and funding for open access publishing.
