Unlocking COVID-19 through Open Access is a video series produced by the University Libraries and the Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship that highlights CU Boulder faculty and researchers using the open access publishing model to make their work on COVID-19 more accessible to the public. Morteza Karimzadeh, an assistant professor of geography at CU Boulder, is using open geospatial data and demographic data to learn more about mitigation and mobility in the United States during the pandemic.


In 2015, CU Boulder adopted an open access policy that grants CU Boulder an irrevocable, nonexclusive and worldwide license to the scholarly work of its faculty, including published journal articles and conference proceedings. More information on open access publishing and COVID-19 research resources can be found through the University Libraries.
