More About Open Access
This guide provides an overview of the Open Access movement, links to resources on OA publishing, a list of publishers providing discounts to UNT authors for OA publisher fees, and other initiatives beyond UNT.
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.
