Description: This webinar will introduce authors to some practical methods for making their research open access (OA). The primary focus will be on the two main ways to make articles OA: publishing in an OA journal or self-archiving a manuscript in an open online repository. We will discuss the important issues to consider along the way and the most useful tools available to help. As readers you may encounter publisher paywalls – we will also talk briefly about (legal!) methods to access the articles you need.

In addition to her MLIS degree, she holds a BSc in Biology and an MSc in Earth Sciences. Driven by her education and research background in the sciences, she has a strong interest in the ways scientists communicate the results of their research and how libraries can support this.
