eScholarship and undergraduate research

eScholarship will extend its robust repository and publishing services platform to include UC undergraduate work, effective immediately. The CDL and UC Libraries recognize the clear and pressing need for the establishment of a service for the dissemination of substantial undergraduate research and publications, which are an increasingly prevalent outcome of the undergraduate education at the University of California. eScholarship already serves the repository and open access publishing needs of UC faculty and graduate students by providing access to nearly 40,000 research publications and 37 UC-affiliated open access journals representing over 275 academic units. Our undergraduate research services will include support for faculty-sponsored undergraduate journals, capstone projects, prizewinning papers, etc. We look forward to working with the campuses to spread the word about this new service. For any inquiries or questions, please contact Catherine Mitchell, Director of Publishing Services, California Digital Library (
