Trends in Open Access



Here at UCF, we recently celebrated the 8th International Open Access Week (http://stars.library.ucf.edu/oaweek/). Open Access, the free and unfettered access to research online, is an ever evolving movement within academia – one that provides increased opportunities to the research community. Though Open Access (OA) has been a part of the academic lexicon for some time now, current trends and practices in the OA movement illustrate the transformative nature that open access is having on the research community. This article will highlight several trends in open access. Though certainly not comprehensive, it serves to spark discussion on how we at UCF view current and emerging open access trends and how the UCF community can continue to be engaged in this ever-expanding movement in academia and publishing.
