Open Access publishing provides a viable alternative to traditional publishing for authors who wish to make their work freely available around the world. RIT Libraries supports the Open Access movement by maintaining an institutional repository and publishing Open Access journals. 

Open Access Journals: 

Explore open-access journals and books that provide free and instant access to full-text research online. Readers can download, copy, distribute, print, and link to articles at no cost to them or to their institutions. 

For information on providing open access to articles and other materials published elsewhere, visit the RIT Scholar Works website. For more information about the process of submitting to or creating an open access publication, contact Nick Paulus. 

RIT Scholar Works:

RIT Scholar Works is the Open Access digital institutional repository for the Rochester Institute of Technology. It contains the full-text (or equivalent) of the products of the research, scholarly, and creative pursuits of RIT’s faculty, staff, and students. 

For information about what is accepted to RIT Scholar Works and how to submit your work, visit the Scholar Works FAQ page or contact Frances Andreu.
