A Friendly Reminder: Upload your Publications to CUNY Academic Works

It’s been seven years since our open access institutional repository known as CUNY Academic Works (CAW) was launched by the CUNY Office of Library Services (OLS). John Jay faculty members can upload their research publications such as journal articles and book chapters to CUNY Academic Works ( By uploading your publications to CAW, you make them available for researchers around the world to find and read for free. The following map illustrates the number of readers of John Jay research publications since CAW was launched in March 2015. As you can see from the map, publications by John Jay faculty are being read across the world. We would like to thank Professor Ellen Sexton who has served as the John Jay campus administrator for CAW since its inception. She has helped develop CAW into what it is today.

For questions about CAW please email me, the new campus administrator, at kokamoto[at] or OLS’s Scholarly Communications Librarian, Meg Wacha (megan.wacha[at]
