Undergraduate Research Student Posters: How to Submit to Academic Works: Overview

This is a guide to support self-archiving by our undergraduate research, honors, and emerging scholars students who prepare posters for our semi-annual poster session.

Undergraduate Research Posters and Academic Works

Students participating in City Tech’s various undergraduate research, honors, and emerging scholars initiatives are invited and encouraged to submit their posters to CUNY Academic Works.

Why submit your poster to Academic Works?
Academic Works preserves your poster and, more importantly, provides you a stable link to your work that you can add to your resume, CV, or portfolio!

What is CUNY Academic Works?

CUNY Academic Works is an online repository of research, scholarship, and creative works produced by the CUNY community. All content in CUNY Academic Works is freely available to everyone, and if someone searches your name or research topic using Google, there’s a good chance your work will be in the search results!

Students are the copyright holders of their work.

Academic Works is a permanent institutional archive; works cannot be changed or removed. Please check with your faculty advisor to see if there are any issues with sharing your work online. 

Below are Instructions for to self-submit your work.
