"Open Access – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. Open Access has the potential to maximize research investments, increase the exposure and use of published research, facilitate the ability to conduct research across available literature, and enhance the overall advancement of scholarship."
Open access is supported at UC Berkeley by the Berkeley Research Impact Initiative (BRII). BRII subsidizes fees charged to authors who select open access or paid access publication.
