Iowa Research Online Repository

Students may choose to submit the thesis to the Iowa Research Online Repository (IROR) but are not required to do so.  

There may be issues with later publication of the project so students must consult with their thesis advisor about whether or not to submit to the IROR.  Specifically, a student considering submitting the thesis project to a journal for publication in the future should research journal restrictions on publication to an online, publicly available resource as some journals will not accept previously published work and some classify work in the IROR as published.  

Submission of a thesis to IROR does allow the student to retain ownership of their work.

The IROR website has a helpful FAQ page with good information and resources for students and thesis advisors.
