The OA model of publishing is a better fit for the collaborative and technology-driven digital age. Benefits include:
- providing greater visibility and citations to researchers
- supporting the goal of equitable access to information across the world, and
- encouraging innovation by enabling accelerated and more collaborative scholarship.
In addition, hundreds of universities and colleges, including CU Boulder, maintain their own institutional repositories (IRs) where faculty, staff, and students can self-archive academic work. Learn more about open access repositories and self-archiving.
