Open access is a publishing model in which readers have free access to the full text of scholarly journal articles online. The open access movement arose in response to the rising costs of academic journal subscriptions, and provides many benefits to scholarly authors, including wider distribution of their work, less lag time between writing and publication, and a greater opportunity to retain the rights to one’s own work.
If you’d like to learn more about open access, this talk is for you! We will cover:
- The benefits of open access publishing
- Authors’ rights
- Green open access (self-archiving on the web)
- Gold open access (open access journals)
- Evaluating potential publishers
- Resources at QC to help you learn more about open access.
This workshop is part of Open Access Week at CUNY. For more Open Access Week events, please see the OA @ CUNY blog.
