Faculty Services: Faculty as Scholars

This research guide features resources and strategies for finding information and conducting research particularly relevant to faculty

Digital Commons

The mission of the Liberty University Digital Commons is capturing, preserving, and freely distributing the scholarship of our community. An online repository for disseminating, storing and preserving the educational and research output of Liberty University, it provides a web-based vehicle through which these resources can be made available to the global academic community.

Faculty are invited to contribute journal articles, book chapters, working papers, conference presentations, audio and video files, theses and dissertations, and other scholarly works. For further information, contact Josh Waltman at 592-6830 or jcwaltman [at] liberty [dot] edu.

Digital Commons also provides the opportunity for individual departments to create scholarly online journals such as these currently published Liberty University Digital Commons Journals.

Staying Current in Your Discipline

There are several ways to receive regular alert emails.  When new research is published on topics of interest to you, or when the latest issue of individual journals are added to the databases, you can be sent an alert.  Here are instructions for setting up either email alerts or RSS Feeds.

Who's Citing You?

Web of Science  Find out which major impact journals are citing your research!  Don’t let “Science” in the name confuse you.  There are three subsets, of this citation analysis service (Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science).  We subscribe to the first two.

Google Scholar  If you have works indexed in Google Scholar, you can create an author profile and see how many authors later cited your work.
