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

October 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Scholarly Communication Workshop Series logo

Whether or not you’ve ever heard or uttered the phrase “open access scholarly literature,” you probably know something about it. For example, you probably know that you can find no-cost copies of many journal articles online. But do you know how to determine if a specific journal article is freely (and legally) available online? In this workshop, we will help you understand the types of sites where open access works can be found, and demonstrate a variety of tools for quickly determining whether a specific item is available open access.

Further, we will introduce a range of options for making your own scholarly work open access, and offer some compelling reasons why you might want to. We’ll pay particular attention to CUNY Academic Works, CUNY’s open access repository, and review some steps you can take to boost your online scholarly profile and maximize the discoverability of the works you place online.
