Get more visibility for your conference posters

You’ve presented a poster at a conference. Around the world, others have found your abstract and would like to view the poster, but unfortunately it may not be available. Now is your chance to increase the visibility of your work and share it worldwide. The library can host your poster in UNMC’s institutional repository, DigitalCommons@UNMC. The repository is indexed in Google and Google Scholar, making your work easy to find. Additionally, you will receive monthly usage reports and can obtain more in-depth metrics in the Author Dashboard.

What if I plan on writing an article based on the poster? Posters are generally not perceived as prior publication, though embargoes are available within our system.

Does the conference have copyright over my poster? Most conferences do not require a copyright transfer. The poster remains under your copyright. However, some conferences may hold the right of first publication and thus the poster cannot be deposited in the repository. The library can help you investigate these issues.

To learn more about submitting your poster, please email us at digitalcommons@unmc.edu.
