What is DigitalCommons@Lesley?

DigitalCommons@Lesley is the institutional repository (IR) for Lesley University. It serves as a platform to preserve and promote the scholarly and creative output of the university. This includes theses, dissertations, student publications, the Journal of Pedagogy, Pluralism, and Practice, and digitized works from the Special Collections & Archives.

Guidelines for Submission

  • Students are encouraged to submit their theses, portfolios, dissertations, and capstone projects
  • Faculty and Staff are encouraged to submit work they have published and retain the right to preserve in an IR (check SHERPA RoMEO to see if your publisher will allow it)

Creative Commons Licensing

We encourage authors that submit their work to DigitalCommons@Lesley to apply a Creative Commons License to their work to instruct the audience of your creative and scholarly works what they can and cannot do with your work. The latest Creative Commons License, 4.0. makes the process for sharing your scholarship easier.
