Open access publishing & repositories

We offer a variety of services to help you communicate and self-archive your scholarly work. Storing your work in an open access system can help authors comply with funder mandates, provide a venue for student or non-traditional scholarship, and increase the readership for your work.

Repositories & Publishing Services

 

Why Open Access?

  • Academic authors can disseminate the results of their research more widely and increase the impact of their work.
  • Academic authors retain more control over their works, instead of signing all or most rights away to commercial publishers.
  • Results of taxpayer-funded research are more accessible to everyone.
  • An alternative to subscription-based scholarly journals, which have increased in price annually beyond the rate of inflation.
