At Florida International University (FIU), the libraries’ publishing endeavors focus on digital media.

Students and faculty publish a wide array of materials through Digital Commons, FIU’s Institutional Repository (IR).

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The ETD Collection is a collaborative publishing effort between the FIU Libraries and the University Graduate School. Together, they accept, process and publish final copies of students’ theses and dissertations.

Graduate students must publish their theses or dissertations through the IR. To add older theses and dissertations housed in the special collections department, the library introduced a scanning project.


The IR hosts a number of peer-reviewed research journals.
