Maryland Shared Open Access Repository

MD-SOAR is a shared digital repository platform for eleven colleges and universities in Maryland. It is currently funded by the University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) Library Consortium ( and other participating partner institutions. MD-SOAR is jointly governed by all participating libraries, who have agreed to share policies and practices that are necessary and appropriate for the shared platform. Within this broad framework, each library provides customized repository services and collections that meet local institutional needs. Please follow the links below to learn more about each library's repository services and collections.

  • Policy-based Malicious Peer Detection in Ad Hoc Networks 

    Li, Wenjia; Joshi, Anupam; Finin, Tim (IEEE, 2009-08-29)
    Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) are susceptible to various node misbehaviors due to their unique features, such as highly dynamic network topology, rigorous power constraints and error-prone transmission media. Significant ...
  • Outlier Detection in Ad Hoc Networks Using Dempster-Shafer Theory 

    Li, Wenjia; Joshi, Anupam (IEEE, 2009-05-18)
    Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) are known to be vulnerable to a variety of attacks due to lack of central authority or fixed network infrastructure. Many security schemes have been proposed to identify misbehaving nodes. ...
  • Delta TFIDF: An Improved Feature Space for Sentiment Analysis 

    Martineau, Justin; Finin, Tim (AAAI, 2009-05-17)
    Mining opinions and sentiment from social networking sites is a popular application for social media systems. Common approaches use a machine learning system with a bag of words feature set. We present Delta TFIDF, an ...
  • An Integration Technology for Long Distance Logistics and Supply Chain Management 

    Cho, Hyunbo; Woo, Jungyu; Ivezik, Nenad; Jones, Albert; Denno, Peter; Peng, Yun (2009-04-05)
    Despite the global economic downturn, import/export trade will continue to grow. That trade depends on many intercontinental, long-distance, logistics partners. Those partners include exporters, brokers, truckers, customs, ...
  • Phase Noise and Performance Optimization in MUTC Photodetectors using the Drift-Diffusion Equations 

    Mahabadi, Seyed Ehsan Jamali; Quinlan, Franklyn J.; Carruthers, Thomas F.; Menyuk, Curtis R. (IEEE, 2018-10-04)
    We calculate the phase noise in modified unitraveling carrier (MUTC) photodetectors using the drift-diffusion equations, avoiding computationally-expensive Monte Carlo simulations. We optimize the performance over a range ...
