Celebrate Green Open Access (OA) Day! Online

For this inaugural celebration of Green OA Day @ Yale, the Yale University community is invited to a fun event to learn about…

  • OA initiatives that exist at Yale [Lindsay Barnett];
  • a research study exploring the self-archiving decisions of Yale School of Public Health faculty [Kayla Del Biondo]; 
  • ShareYourPaper, a web tool that helps make self-archiving easy for authors [Kate Nyhan].

In the final 15 minutes of the event, librarians Lindsay Barnett and Kayla Del Biondo will answer your questions about green OA and navigating journal policies. You can also use this time to self-archive work in the company of your colleagues. This event is intended for Yale University librarians but is open to all Yale affiliates who wish to learn more about green OA.

Yale is just one of many institutions celebrating Green OA Day this year. Learn more about the initiative and register for the ‘Community Call’ event on Weds., March 27th, intended to bring together all campus partners.

Green OA Day is a grassroots library initiative to promote and educate about green open access (OA).

Also referred to as self-archiving, green OA is when authors make a version of their published, pay-to-access works freely accessible on some kind of website or repository so that anyone with internet access can read and learn from it.

Green OA is a cost-effective and equitable pathway to making research open access, especially for authors who can’t afford to pay the article processing fees charged by Gold OA journals. It’s also a pathway towards meeting funder requirements for open access!
