Open Access: Library Support

Open Access Support: Overview

Yale University “as a matter of fundamental policy...encourages the wide dissemination of scholarly work produced by members of the Yale community, including copyrightable works” (Yale University Copyright Policy). The Yale University Library (YUL) supports this policy in a variety of ways:

  • Funding for selected open access publications and initiatives that:
    • Support a wide range of collection-related initiatives designed to increase the availability of scholarly research materials to the global community.
    • Encourage the development of new cost models as an alternative to current subscription models that involve paywalls and other restrictions.
  • Funding for selected journals and programs that provide discounts on author processing charges (APCs) for Yale authors.
  • EliScholar, a repository for the scholarly output of researchers at Yale University. It promotes dissemination of their work, and preserves it in a freely-accessible, long-term archive. EliScholar allows researchers and other interested readers anywhere in the world to learn about and keep up to date with Yale scholarship.
  • Consultation services on issues of scholarly communication and copyright. Contact the copyright and licensing librarian.
