Open Access Explained: Best Practices for Finding Others’ Research and Publicly Sharing Yours

March 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Scholarly Communication Workshop Series logo

You probably know that you can find cost-free (i.e., open access) copies of many journal articles online. But do you know how to determine if a specific article you seek is free to read (and legally posted)? In this workshop, we’ll clear up some common confusions about open access, highlight some sites where open access publications can be found, and demonstrate some tools for quickly determining whether a specific item is open access.

Further, we will introduce a range of options for making your own scholarly work open access, and offer some reasons why you might want to. We’ll pay particular attention to CUNY’s own public access repository, CUNY Academic Works.

This workshop is part of the Scholarly Communication Essentials workshop series. It is geared toward the Graduate Center community but open to everyone at CUNY.
