Open Access is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles, coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.
You can celebrate Open Access Week by:
- Visiting our open access repository of Bucknell scholarship, the Bucknell Digital Commons.
- Checking out our Research Guides to Services for Scholarly Publication, and Open Access Publishing & Policies.
- Looking up research articles in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
- Review a publisher’s copyright policies using SHERPA / RoMEO.
You can join the Open Access movement by depositing your research in the Digital Commons, or publishing in an open access journal, or adopting an open access textbook. You can post photos on Flickr or video on YouTube using a Creative Commons license. Share your scholarship openly!
