Staying Informed in Social Work Practice: Open Access

This guide presents resources and suggestions for keeping current with social work research after you graduate from the University of Denver. Thanks to Sue Wortman, Social Work Librarian, University of Michigan, for providing the model for the guide.

Open Access Resources

Open Access is the term for journals and other scholarly materials that are available for free on the Internet.  Keep in mind that there are different levels of open access--some publishers reserve the right to restrict access to new journal content for a certain time (ranging from a few months to a few years after initial publication) before making the articles available on the Web.  See Dr Peter Suber's Very Brief Introduction to Open Access for more information.
