It's Open Access Week!

You know firsthand that students are expected to cite articles from scholarly journals when they write research papers. You’ve probably used journal articles in your coursework. You’ve probably also encountered journal articles that you wanted to read – potentially important articles – but couldn’t get access to.
It doesn’t have to be this way.

This is what Open Access (OA) is all about.  Open Access means free, unrestricted access on the Internet to the same type of high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship that is available by subscription.
