This database features a cohort of IWL scholars, each focusing on some aspect of gender research. The larger, Marquette e-Publications is a database which allows the public access to Marquette’s scholarly research. Through this database, which has open public access, IWL is able to highlight and promote the rich interdisciplinary, gender-based research of our affiliated scholars. It can be searched by name and discipline, allowing for a enriched exploration. Above you can see a sample of how many individuals, across the globe, have downloaded work from within the IWL scholar cohort. Please click here to explore the IWL e-Publications Database.

It is noteworthy that the IWL is the only institutional organization to use the Marquette e-Publications database in a cohort manner, bringing together scholars covering a common topic. In fact the vendor which supplies and supports e-Publications was so excited by this cohort model that they are now promoting it to other institutions. The IWL is proud to have ideated and launched this new cohort modeling for the promotion of IWL gender-based scholarship.
