Open Access Week

Open Access is Sustainable Access for All!

Faculty scholars and researchers routinely give away the fruits of their labor to for-profit publishers of scholarly communication.

1) Research library budgets cannot sustain ever-increasing subscription costs for scholarly journals; open access journals provide a different model for scholarly communication that empowers the author rather than the publisher.

2) When research is published in open access journals and/or placed in open access institutional repositories, members of the public can access needed research results, which are often funded with tax-payer monies.

3) A growing body of research suggests that open access to research articles and research data spurs on new discoveries and is more cited than research locked behind a pay wall.

Join us in exploring these myriad efforts to liberate scholarly communication during the international celebration of Open Access Week, 2010.
