Open Access Kent State
Open Access Kent State (OAKS) is Kent State University's Institutional Repository, a platform for the preservation and promotion of the academic output of our multi-campus system. Institutional Repositories (IRs) collect the scholarly output of an organization under one digital umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. OAKS highlights the scholarship at all of Kent State University’s campuses and locations and offers the ability to search by discipline and discover full-text scholarly work.
