Douglas College Library and The Research and Innovation Office (RIO) offer DOOR (DOuglas Open Repository) as a publishing platform to promote and profile your scholarly work. DOOR creates a repository hub of Douglas College's intellectual outputs, thereby highlighting the College's unique contributions to the world of knowledge.
Join your faculty colleagues who have created a scholar profile which links to their scholarly works. Are you working on a project that needs a place to be published? DOOR could be your solution, DOOR showcases scholarly works, conference presentations, and research projects of the Douglas College community in a variety of file formats (e.g. podcasts).
If you are a Douglas College faculty member and would like a faculty profile in DOOR you can use the scholar online form. Contact Gretchen for the current password. Do you have a student who has an research paper or project of excellence? You can sponsor them to add their work in the student research collection in DOOR. Students can upload their work as well, including their sponsor support from a faculty member. If you have any questions contact Gretchen Goertz (Scholarly Communications Librarian).
DOOR is a member of Arca which is British Columbia's province-wide network of institutional repositories.

License and Submission Agreement
The library needs your permission to host your research and describe your scholarly work in DOOR. This applies to all materials from faculty, students and staff. In future, if we migrate to a new software you will also be granting us permission to move your works to this new repository. Learn more about submissions to DOOR.
Applied Thesis Templates
Faculty, with your sponsorship your honours degree students can download these Psychology or Criminology department approved fillable thesis templates. Students will use these as front covers for either the full text thesis submissions or abstract thesis submissions to the DOOR student thesis collection. Please ensure the thesis is an unmarked copy with the student number removed.
Students publishing in peer reviewed journals can upload their abstract and once the research article is published the abstract can be replaced with the full version of their thesis by contacting DOOR. Additionally, encourage your students to send their journal publication to be added to DOOR.
