If you would like to provide greater access to the articles you have written for scholarly publishers, then you can check the database below to see if the publisher will allow the library (or other organizations) to provide open access to your articles. Research has shown strong correlations between open access and higher citation rates. Most scholarly publishers allow their authors to post versions of articles to websites such as Peak Digital. For example, the IEEE and the American Institute of Physics allow authors to archive the publisher’s version/PDF. The publisher Elsevier will allow you to archive your post-print (final draft post-refereed version).
Please use the Sherpa/Romeo database of journal and publisher copyright policies.
If you haven’t published your article yet, then you could consider publishing your article in a completely open access journal. This will give everyone in the world a chance to view your scholarly work without needing a subscription to the content. Please let us know if you have any other questions concerning open access resources.
