The Research and Scholarship Institutional Repository collects, preserves, and showcases the scholarly achievements of Texas State University's academic community. It provides open access to the diverse array of research and scholarship materials created at Texas State including articles, presentations, posters, electronic theses and dissertations, capstones, multimedia presentations, and more.
An important aspect of research is sharing the results with your peers and the general public, and reflects the University Mission, Values, and Goals.
The University Libraries is committed to the value of open and supports open access, open data, open educational resources, and open source software to enable a more equitable, collaborative, and sustainable global system of knowledge exchange. Openness reduces barriers to access, innovation, and sharing.
The Research and Scholarship Institutional Repository offers the opportunity for researchers to disseminate their work to the widest possible audiences, increasing impact and highlighting the valuable work of our university community. All Texas State University faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to boost the reach and impact of their work by depositing it in the TXST Research and Scholarship Repository.
