Open Access Resources

“Open access makes it possible for the results of research to have the greatest possible impact. It is based on the idea that the products of research (i.e., full-text publications and research data) should be available to the user free of charge and without restrictions. This means that the results of research should be permanently accessible online, either through open access electronic journals, monographs or textbooks, or through institutional or personal repositories or archival systems.” (Source -SSHRC)
