Open Access is a method of sharing scholarship that is digital, online, free of charge and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. You can participate in Open Access initiatives at Emory to preserve your work, and to make it more visible and accessible around the world.
The Emory Libraries are building an Open Access Digital Repository of faculty articles, expected to launch in Spring 2012. The Open Access Repository will provide an option for permanent and free access to scholarship authored by Emory researchers. For more information on Open Access and Emory’s initiatives, see http://guides.main.library.emory.edu/OA.
Emory faculty and students currently publish several Open Access journals, including Southern Spaces, Molecular Vision, Practical Matters, Methodist Review, Spencer Review, Religion Dispatches and Non-Site. These journals are peer-reviewed publications, but they have no subscription fees and access is free all over the world.
Emory is a member institution of the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), which aims to increase the visibility and use of open access scientific and scholarly journals. DOAJ is a directory of free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals on a wide variety of subjects. Visit http://www.doaj.org/ to learn more.
By making Emory scholarship freely accessible everywhere, we raise the visibility of the work produced here, and further the intellectual community here at Emory.
