It’s International Open Access Week, Oct. 23-29!

Posted On: October 23, 2017

Today kicks off  International Open Access Week! The UC San Diego Library is joining the conversation about the importance of openly available scholarship by sharing Open Access tools, news, and advocacy opportunities in order to actively support the full scholarly communication lifecycle.

Open In Order to Reuse!

We are kicking off #OAWeek with opportunities to learn more about Open Access, tools to facilitate and share your research as widely as possible, and actions to take to influence policy to safeguard public access to research and scholarship. 

What is Open Access? 

Tools to Legally Obtain Research Locked Behind Subscription Paywalls

The Open Access Button

Free, legal research articles, and data delivered instantly or automatically requested from authors.

Finding Available Research
Give us a scholarly paper and we’ll search thousands of sources with millions of articles to link you to free, legal, full text articles instantly.

Requesting Resarch
If we can’t get you access, we’ll start a request for you. We request articles from authors, and guide them on making the work available to you and everyone who needs it.

Unpaywall 

Read paywalled research papers for free. It’s fast, free, and legal, powered by a database of millions of author-uploaded PDFs. Unpaywall tab can change colors to indicate Green or Gold OA, too.
