The open access (OA) movement is part of the broader "open knowledge" or "open content" movement that covers open source software, open data from government or researchers, and open access scholarship. This guide includes some terms that relate to open access scholarship in particular.
UNT Scholarly Works serves as the University of North Texas institutional repository, bringing together the research and scholarship of our university community.
The UNT Data Repository is a central archive to provide long-term preservation and access to the research data of the UNT scholarly community.
Copyright Advisory Services provides assistance with copyright, author rights, licensing, and other intellectual property issues.
The Scholarly Open Access E-Journal Support service provides hosting and consultation support to the UNT departments and faculty who are interested in producing their own online open access scholarly journal.
Scholarly Publishing Services helps members of the UNT community disseminate the results of their research. Works published under the Eagle Editions imprint are free to read online and in many cases available to purchase in print and as an e-book. Furthermore, the Editors’ Roundtable supports members of the UNT community in their publishing endeavors. Individual consultations about publishing projects are also available.
