Kent State's Global Reach

When Kent State students upload their abstracts for the Undergraduate Research Symposium on Digital Commons, through Kent State University Libraries, those files live forever on a server that makes them available for download from anywhere in the world. Among the many services Digital Commons provides is a monthly notice about how Kent State students' work is reaching other students and academics all over the globe.

Now you can visit this page every month to see if your paper is drawing attention, see where Kent State students' papers are being downloaded, and track the top reads, or check out the map below just to appreciate the magnitude of Kent State's scholarly reach.

We'll soon have the map embedded right on this page, but for now, you can view it here.
