Workshop: Scholars Without Borders: How to Get Free, Open Access Articles
Date: Thursday March 15, 2012
Location: Hayden Library, Room C6A/East (on Upper Concourse Level), Tempe campus
Description: Academic libraries and other institutions spend considerable portions of their budgets on databases that help students find articles for their assignments. Since 2001, when the open access movement began, many new scholarly journals have been launched with open-access policies, and an increasing number of established print journals have switched to an open access format. Although the proportion of open access material remains small, the number of scholarly journals and articles available free of charge to users continues to grow steadily.
Attendees of this presentation will be introduced to the concept of open access, learn how to find free scholarly articles, and discuss various other aspects of this relatively new practice in the world of scholarly publishing.
