Remember to choose journals carefully; see the Vetting OA Journals section of this guide for more information, or contact the Scholarly Communications Librarian for assistance.
Publishing your work in an open access repository is an additional way to share your research. Remember to comply with copyright and licensing restrictions when when publishing in a repository see our Guide to Copyright for more information. Repositories are institutional, like Our Scholars' Mine, or discipline-specific.
Sharing data is becoming increasingly important in research and is often mandated by funding agencies. Many discipline-specific repositories are both open access and accept research datasets.
What happens to your copyrights when you publish? Every publisher has differing policies regarding self-archiving and your continued use of your published work. This SHERPA/RoMEO database provides a searchable collection of publisher policies--check here first when deciding where to publish. Additional information about copyright is also available in our Library Guide to Copyright.
