Open Access CoP

The Open Access (OA) CoP is designed for participants to share knowledge, expertise, scholarship, ideas, and suggestions on the implementation of open access. Open access refers to an alternative academic publishing model in which research outputs (including peer-reviewed academic journal articles, theses, book chapters, and monographs) are made freely available to the general public for viewing, and often for reuse. This is unlike the traditional scholarly publishing model under which publishers require institutions or individuals to pay for access to these materials.

Collectively, the OA CoP is a place to discuss, share, and develop advocacy strategies for open access at UBC. We may invite expert scholars and practitioners to give workshops on emerging ideas and tools related to open access.
