Deposit Your Work in Open Access Repositories

An Open Access Repository or archive preserves and makes its content freely
and openly available online.  Why consider depositing your work in an Open
Access Repository?  Due to the economics of journal publishing, libraries
are reducing the number of journals they subscribe to.  In the past the UW
Libraries would likely have purchased subscriptions to the journals in which
you prefer to publish and would have preserved those journals in paper
copy.  Now, however, most academic journal access is digital, and
libraries typically license rather than purchase access to journal content,
which remains under the control of the publisher.  This means that if the
UW Libraries can no longer afford to pay the annual subscription cost, we may
be left with no retrospective access at all to some important journals in which
your work is published.  Other libraries all over the world are in much
this same situation.

Some journals allow you to deposit a copy of your published work in an Open
Access Repository, others may require that you sign an Author Addendum
enabling you to do so.

    You may be able to attach an addendum to
    your publishing agreement to allow for depositing in open access

    Find publishers that allow authors to deposit the publisher version or PDF
    of their article in an Institutional Repository, without fee or an

Include your work in the UW’s institutional repository, or in a
disciplinary repository:

  • ResearchWorks Archives

    This is the University of Washington’s open access repository. The UW
    Libraries encourage contributions from all communities across the three
    Collected Repositories

    Find discipline based and other repositories using the resources listed on
    The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) web

Comply with open access mandates from funding agencies:

  • PubMed Central

    The National Institutes of Health’s free digital archive of biomedical and
    life sciences journal literature. NIH Public Access Policy
    requires that any articles resulting from NIH-funded research be
    submitted to this open access repository.

    Use this resource to determine if your funder requires that you submit articles
    based on your funded research to an open access repository.
