The scholarly research you have worked so hard on should be available to the widest audience possible. The Open Access concept allows authors to share their research anywhere, with anyone. Open Access Week brings attention to the changes needed in academic publishing today.
Hope faculty affirms the core value of the college “to contribute to the body of knowledge in the academic disciplines” with a vision “to pursue truth so as to renew the mind, enrich the disciplines and transform the culture.”
In the last year alone, 6,206 faculty publications have been downloaded from Hope College’s Digital Commons, a repository of scholarly work from the Hope College community. Hope College Library would love to increase the number of submissions from faculty members! Our Open Access LibGuide has all the information you need to submit your articles to Digital Commons.
