Open access is the barrier free dissemination of research that aims to remove cost and increase information dissemination in order to create a more egalitarian learning environment. Join UNO Libraries for a discussion of how making your research open access can strengthen control of your scholarship in the digital age. In this workshop we will explore the emergence of open access publishing in academia and how support for this alternative publishing model can benefit authors, students, and the wider research community.
Traditionally, when authors submit their work to a journal they also sign over the copyright to their work. This can mean that authors give up the rights to reuse and distribute copies of their own research. To safeguard an author’s intellectual property, there are ways that an author can maintain control of their work. Through discussion of open access publishing models and the support provided by the UNO Libraries’ Open Access Fund for research, as well as the services provided by DigitalCommons@UNO, we will explore ways that you can curate and control your body of research while still responding to the sharing culture of the Digital Age.
The workshop is part of the library’s Open Access Week celebrations, the theme of which is Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge.
