The implementation of a publishing platform at Southern Illinois University
Edwardsville is allowing the University to preserve and provide access to
more of its faculty’s research. The initiative will aid in reducing the
ongoing million-dollar expense of gaining access to research that’s been
conducted at SIUE, but published by an outside company.

*SPARK, Scholarly Publications and Repository of Knowledge*, is an
institutional repository that provides a central location to gather the
research, creative activity and other work that comes out of the University
and the community. The open access, publishing platform complies with the
State of Illinois Open Access to Research Articles Act, signed into law in
August 2013.


*​Now there is an easy name to remember and it is a very clever acronym.*
