This year’s International Open Access Week theme is “Open in order to…” The theme serves as a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what open access enables. How can the question “Open in order to…” be answered? “Open in order to raise the visibility of my research”; “Open in order to help my scholarship find its audience”; “Open in order to enable better global participation in scholarship and research”; “Open in order to find new collaborators”; and more. Take action to realize these benefits!
Open Access is the free online access to journal articles, conference papers, theses, and other research outputs without restriction on their use. Anyone can access, use, and share knowledge through open access publishing.
UNO Libraries encourages UNO faculty and students to publish their research outputs making them freely accessible through DigitalCommons@UNO, UNO's open access digital repository. DigitalCommons@UNO is also home to UNO's open access journals and conference proceedings.
Did you know UNO Libraries has a fund to support publishing in open access journals? The UNO Open Access Fund finances payment of article processing fees for UNO faculty in open access journals or hybrid journals.
