A portion of the Open Access exhibit currently on display in the Niederhoffer Lounge
Today’s scholars have integrated open-access practices into their normal research routines. Did you know that you are already an open access supporter? By searching for and using freely-available research outlets, self-archiving your articles and data, and/or choosing to publish in open access journals, you are taking part in the open access movement.
Whether you are new to open access or your actions already support the principles behind the open access movement, consider doing more.
- To ensure permanent access to the outputs of your research, deposit your work in CUNY Academic Works.
- Visit the Open Access exhibit in the library’s Niederhoffer Lounge displaying artefacts chosen to highlight three themes: Publish, Archive and Discover.
- Listen to a recording of one of the SUNY libraries hosted webcasts. Of especial interest are CUNY’s Academic Works repository administrator Megan Wacha speaking on Scholarship That’s Scholar-Led: And Introduction to Open Access and SPARC’s Heather Joseph on The Bigger Picture of OA: Alternate Models of Review and Emerging Practices.
