Atkins Library Open Access Publishing Whitepaper

Open Access Publishing Whitepaper

As part of our efforts to further Open Access (OA) publishing efforts at UNC Charlotte, the Atkins Library Open Access & Scholarly Communications Committee published an Open Access Publishing whitepaper. This whitepaper briefly describes the current scholarly publishing landscape, outlines ways in which Atkins Library supports OA publishing, and includes evidence supporting an OA publishing mandate at UNC Charlotte. 

You can find the full text of the whitepaper in Niner Commons, the university's institutional repository.

If you have any questions or comments concerning the whitepaper or an OA publishing mandate for our campus, please contact Bethany Blankemeyer or Savannah Lake
