The Argo Scholar Commons serves two purposes. It contains researcher profiles which provide information about faculty, their research, and scholarly works. And at the same time it is the online repository where a community (in this case, the University of West Florida) gathers, preserves, and showcases scholarly output produced by its members and makes these materials available to the world (copyright permitting). This output may include both publications in peer-reviewed journals and materials not published elsewhere (datasets, pre-prints, post-prints, performance recordings, syllabi, posters, theses and dissertations, book chapters, posters, videos etc).
Unlike a personal website We can help UWF, faculty members manage their materials in a central location, in standardized formats, and in ways that allow for more effective search, retrieval, and long-term, digital preservation.

All faculty start with a basic profile that has contact information, much like departmental web pages. Faculty can then log into their profile and start editing. Information may be updated when warranted. Your research output is on a separate page and includes works harvested from databases and Google Scholar.
Please see the user guide for more information.
While only faculty have profiles, anyone with a UWF research affiliation including faculty, staff, and students can submit materials. Faculty may do this through through their profile. Staff and students can contact Andii Johnson, email@example.com. We are interested in a wide variety of materials including peer-reviewed materials, teaching and learning objects, presentations, videos, data sheets, lab experiment procedures, posters, conference papers, and many other products of original research and academic creativity.

A notation of withdrawal will be placed in the record.
