The Library encourages you make your publications available through Open Access if you can. We have programs available to support Gold and Green pathways to Open Access.
If you need help finding Open Access journals in your field...
ScholarWorks is the CSU's Open Access repository for research, scholarship, creative work, teaching materials, datasets, and student dissertations and theses. If you are publishing in a subscription journal and their self archiving or Green OA policy allows deposit in an institutional repository, you can contribute the appropriate version to ScholarWorks.
See Information for ScholarWorks Contributors for more details.
How much of Fresno State's research and scholarship is available Open Access? One way to get an idea is to look at articles indexed in the Web of Science database. Of articles that involve Fresno State authors (the blue area), about half are Open Access (the gold area). A large part of the Open Access articles are associated with the ATLAS Collaboration (the gray area).
