Scholarship@Claremont is the Claremont Colleges' open access repository of faculty and student scholarship. Seniors at CMC and Scripps are required to upload their theses to Scholarship@Claremont. At the other colleges, upload requirements are either optional, or on a department-by-department basis.
Please note that once a thesis has been submitted, it will not be removed unless there are charges of plagiarism or copyright violation.
Some benefits of uploading your thesis to S@C:
Discoverable through Google and other search engines.
Students will have a permanent URL to their work that they can access any time (if you choose the Open Access option--default for Scripps is campus-only access), email, link to, post, on resumes, job applications, websites, send to family and friends, etc.
Students will receive a download count report that will tell them how often their thesis has been viewed.
Increases the visibility of student work, potentially leading to improved job prospects or graduate school placement for students.
5. If necessary, choose an embargo, or an exemption and have the form signed by your advisor.
6. Upload, then celebrate! Congratulations!
Please note that once a thesis has been submitted, it will not be removed unless there are charges of plagiarism or copyright violation. You can always change access from Claremont Campus Only to Open Access, but once you cannot restrict access once it is open.
