MU researchers publishing via open access: We salute you!

You hear a lot of chatter about escalating journal subscription prices, which typically inflate about 6-7% year after year, in good economic times or bad.

But some of our faculty are helping to change the publishing paradigm by making their work available via open access. By paying a fee up front, they made their article available instantly to everybody on the web – no paywalls or subscriptions required. In most cases, they also retain ownership of their work, and don’t have to sign over their rights to the publisher.

Open access is the best defense the academic community has against out of control journal price increases, and we salute these authors and others like them for leading the way!
