Open Publishing

When it’s time to publish your research and scholarship, we encourage you to consider publishing in Open Access (OA) formats to increase equitable access to scholarship created at UNC Charlotte.

Open access publishing of scholarly work assures research is available online at no cost for the reader and increases the dissemination of ideas to improve our global society. Unlocking unnecessary paywalls to influential research not only increases the impact of research conducted at UNC Charlotte, but supports information equity for people around the world.

Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte regards Open Access publication of scholarly works as a foundational aspect of a sustainable communication system for scholars and researchers.

To support this idea, we provide the following services to researchers on campus related to both publishing in open access journals (Gold OA) or depositing work in Niner Commons (Green OA):
