Open access publishing is often presented as a monolith, but there are a variety of approaches to making your work available open access. Defined by Peter Suber as “digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions,” open access initiatives and models have emerged since the movement gained momentum at the beginning of the twenty-first century (Open Access, 2012, 4).

Participants will explore open access publishing to better understand its principles and practices. Facilitators will share campus resources to support a variety of open access publishing models, including institutional funding for open access publishing charges, green open access via deposit in the institutional repository (ISU ReD), and transformative agreements offered by Milner Library. Finally, participants will engage in a discussion focused on ways to increase engagement with and impact of their scholarly work via open access.

This workshop is designed for early career faculty members in their first four years at Illinois State, although others engaged in scholarly work at ISU are welcome.


This presentation was given as a workshop through the Center for Integrated Professional Development.
