Disseminate Your Work Using Open Access Platforms
Open access repositories provide free, online access to scholarly materials while open access publishing platforms, such as UC’s eScholarship, provide a range of publishing and dissemination services to targeted groups of authors, such as faculty members or academic departments associated with a specific institution. Some open access repositories and publishing platforms accept multiple types of scholarly materials, including pre-publication materials, journals and peer-reviewed series, seminar series papers, post-prints, and more.
In addition to providing an institutional repository for the dissemination of previously published materials (postprints) written by UC-associated scholars, eScholarship also supports the open access digital publication of original scholarly work produced by UC departments, research units, and publishing programs. These original publications include journals, book series, paper series, conference proceedings, and more.
Disciplinary repositories function as a resource for the centralized collection and dissemination of research within specific fields.
