A thesis, dissertation, or professional paper is an important contribution to scholarship and society. Sharing these contributions supports UNLV’s mission and Top Tier efforts to create an environment in which “students produce high quality, widely disseminated, and influential research, scholarship, and creative activities.”

  • • Digital Scholarship@UNLV is committed to a high-level of preservation of theses, dissertations, and professional papers, ensuring that these contributions to scholarship will exist for future generations.
  • • Readership reports and impact metrics are available for authors, allowing authors to know in real time how often their work was downloaded, cited, or tweeted.
