Spectrum is Concordia university's open access institutional repository that centralizes access and preserves the research created at Concordia, Montreal, Canada. By depositing their work in Spectrum, Concordia scholars provide free and immediate access to their work and thus increase the visibility of both their own research and their university's intellectual output. Open access leads to the increased research profile and impact of scholars by bringing about greater levels of readership and citation of their publications"
