Tennessee Research and Creative Exchange (TRACE) is UT’s institutional open-access repository. It is a publicly-accessible archive of research and creative work done by the UT and UTIA communities.
Created and maintained by the UT Libraries, TRACE gives UT researchers a legal means to make their publications openly available to the public, in keeping with the terms of their publication agreements with journal publishers. It includes journal articles, technical reports, data sets, theses and dissertations, conference papers and presentations, book chapters, and other works.
