Open Access Week, October 20th - 26th

This week highlights the benefits of Open Access as the new standard of publication in scholarship and research.

Open Access is a publishing model that allows for literature to be accessed freely and without restrictions. Many journals and institutional repositories, like the CSU ePress, have adopted an Open Access policy in order to make research freely available to the public. 

Benefits to Open Access:
  • Improves the visibility of scholarship
  • Increases dissemination of research
  • Increases rates of citations

What does this mean for you?
  • You have free access to all of the works in Open Access sources.
  • You can read, download, distribute, copy, print, and cite the research posted in Open Access journals and institutional repositories.
  • By supporting Open access journals and institutional repositories you promote Open Access.
