Open Access Faculty Panel Discussion
Happy Open Access Week! We’re celebrating this year’s theme “Community over Commercialization” with a faculty panel discussion on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2023, at noon CDT on Zoom. Panelists include Leonardo Marchini, DEO and professor in Preventative and Community Dentistry, Kembrew McLeod, department chair and professor in Communication Studies, Maurine Neiman, professor in Biology, and Deborah Whaley, department chair and professor in African American Studies.
In what promises to be a lively discussion, panelists will discuss their experiences with open access publishing and open scholarship more broadly. They will also share their views on the benefits and barriers to the free and open sharing of research outputs with the public and the academic community.
Register here for the Libraries’ Open Access Faculty Panel. We look forward to seeing you!
Open Access at Iowa
Open Access Publishing
According to data from SciVal, 58.51% of the University of Iowa’s total publishing activity in 2020-2023 is Open Access. Keep up the great work, Hawkeyes! Browse open access research and scholarship by UI authors on Iowa Research Online.
Open Access Agreements
The UI Libraries has entered into several agreements with publishers to allow UI authors to publish open access without paying article processing charges (APCs). So far, the funding from these agreements has saved UI authors over $1.5 million!
UI Libraries Support Open Access
Iowa Research Online
If you can’t publish in an open access journal, you can still make your work open access by depositing your accepted manuscripts, pre-prints, research data and other work in the university’s institutional repository, Iowa Research Online. Publisher restrictions on versions and embargoes may apply, so please contact email@example.com or your subject librarian for more information.
No matter your path to open access, the UI Libraries can help. The specialist librarians in our Scholarly Impact department stay up-to-date on funder and publisher policies so we can provide personalized assistance to meet your needs. We also offer workshops on Publishing Open Access and Data Sharing and Publication, customized for your department or research group. Please contact us or your subject librarian for assistance.
