Open access (OA) is free-of-charge, permanent, web-based access to online scholarly publications. OA gives increased visibility to research because the publication process is fast, broadly and freely available on the Internet, and provides long-term document availability. The UF Open Access Publishing Fund supports the goal of making UF research immediately, freely and globally available by assisting UF authors with reasonable article processing fees for publishing in open access journals.
Come and learn more about publishing trends and how to maximize your research through OA.
