Online Paper Repository

Continuing Paper Access to AERA Annual Meetings
and other Convenings

Welcome to the AERA Online Paper Repository

The AERA Online Paper Repository is an open-access
clearinghouse with abstracts of all scientific presentations given
at AERA annual meetings since 2010. More than half of these
records include full-text papers voluntarily contributed to the
repository by Annual Meeting presenters. AERA encourages all
presenters to make their full-text papers available to the
repository as a way to distribute their research more widely.

For scholars, students, and other users, the repository:

  • Offers an opportunity for broader access to work presented at AERA Annual Meetings
  • Serves as a reference on current scholarship and research
  • Outlines guidelines for citing scholarship presented at Annual Meetings

For presenters, the repository:

  • Allows work to be shared open access and with a broader audience than those attending the session
  • Records in a permanent online archive the full-text of authors' work
  • Includes a digital object identifier (DOI), a persistent identifier that makes authors’ work easier to discover, locate, and cite.
