Open Access Publishing Agreements

IU Bloomington Libraries has negotiated several agreements with publishers for free or discounted open access publishing to support researchers in sharing their scholarly output. We believe that accessible, transparent research, and respect for author's rights are critical elements of modern scholarship. See our Open Scholarship website and Open Access LibGuide to learn more.
