What does it mean to publish my research ‘open access’? In-Person
‘Open access’ (OA) means that your research is published or shared in a way that makes it free to read by anyone (anyone with a computer and internet access, that is). OA is a movement that has gained momentum over time, empowering authors and academic institutions to partner with open access journals and disseminate scholarly works to the masses, rather than leaving commercial publishers to be the gatekeepers of information.
Join librarian, Kayla Del Biondo, to learn about open access terminology, web tools that can help you find information about OA journals you might submit a manuscript to, along with recent policy changes from the Office of Science and Technology Policy of the U.S. Government that will make government-funded research immediately accessible to all Americans in the near future.
Would you like to educate your peers about open access during your time at Yale? Email Kayla about getting involved with a graduate student-run coalition for OA research.
International Open Access Week is this month, October 24 - 30, 2022. Open Access helped information flow rapidly during the COVID-19 pandemic (see section 2 from this Memorandum from the OSTP of the U.S. Government). The climate crisis is no different; we will have to share knowledge without borders. Hence, the 2022 Theme for OA Week, Open for Climate Justice.
