What is OPEN ACCESS?
Open Access means free online access to scholarly articles and research. An Open Access article has limited copyright and licensing restrictions, may be read, downloaded, copied, or distributed. As with any scholarly resource, authors should be properly acknowledged and cited.
Why do we need it?
Open Access has the potential to maximize research investments, increase the exposure and use of published research, facilitate the abilitity to conduct research a cross available literature and enhance the overall advancement of scholarship.
High costs of published scholarly journals are a barrier to access and place a barrier between faculty research and their readers.
