What is Open Access and Why Should You Care?
How we communicate scholarly information and make it available is changing.
The digital revolution has changed how we interact with information; traditional models of dissemination are no longer practical. At the same time, the price of scholarly journals, the traditional method of making scholarly research available, has skyrocketed, making it difficult to access valuable information.
There is increasing momentum to make the output of scholarly research freely and openly availalbe. In this changing climate, it is important to be aware of how to make scholarly information more open, as well as how to access resources that are already available.
