Texas Tech University

Online publishing, archival service for researchers

July 20, 2010


Have you heard of recent requirements by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as pending requirements for National Science Foundation (NSF) grant recipients to have a plan in place for data management?

Do you know your University Libraries has a repository service available to you that addresses these needs?

ThinkTech is an online publishing and archival service for the Texas Tech University community that scholars may use to distribute and archive their scholarly works with no limitations on content or format. ThinkTech also provides access to materials that traditional publications cannot. Users may access:

  • Gray literature
  • Video
  • Audio
  • Images
  • Data sets
  • Charts/graphs

NSF and other federal agencies are strongly emphasizing the importance of community access to data, and legislation is pending that would require the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a policy that would apply to every major federal research agency. With Texas Tech's ever-increasing focus on research, it's important that our investigators have a way to manage the data that they collect, thereby improving their chances of obtaining funding.
