Open Access (OA), Memberships & Publishing Initiatives

This guide is not intended to be comprehensive and only provides a brief summary of available resources for open access, memberships and publishing initiatives. To learn more about open access or about UT Austin specific resources please contact Colleen Lyon, Head of Scholarly Communications.

See her guide here: Open Access at UT Austin.

Open Access Publishing Initiatives

The memberships and initiatives below provide direct benefits to UT authors. Please note  - when we have agreements in place that cover the entire APC, choosing the OA option does NOT cost you anything and does not cause an incremental increase in the cost of UTL’s agreements with these publishers.

If you are being asked to choose a Creative Commons license and would like more information about what that means, see our Creative Commons LibGuide or contact Colleen Lyon. 

A list of the options with direct author benefits is BELOW.

OA Week 2023 Event - Support for OA Publishing at UT

In this session we’ll talk about UT Libraries support for open access (OA) publishing, including support that eliminates article processing charges (APCs) for UT authors. We’ll discuss the main types of OA publishing business models (including OA book publishing), and how the Libraries is strategically investing in these options. Finally, we’ll show participants how they can share their work regardless of the publication model. This free session is open to anyone, but will be of most interest to faculty, students, and staff who publish scholarly content. Registration is required

Date/time:  Tuesday, Oct. 24th from 12:00pm-1:00pm (Zoom registration link
