Ed.D. Students and the Kutztown University Research Commons

A guide to help KU's Ed.D. students license and upload their dissertations.

What is the KU Research Commons?


  1. is a global-open access platform for faculty research.
  2. uses Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to make your research come out near the top of the results when someone searches your key terms on the internet.
  3. is open-access, which means that to post something, you need to be the holder of the copyright.
  4. gives you a permanent URL address to each piece of work that is never deleted.
  5. compiles statistics on the number and locations of views and downloads of your work for your CV or portfolio.
