Open Access, Minerva Access and Research Visibility
You hit a paywall of $30 for a journal article, the link to a report results in a 404, you want to read a chapter from a book that isn’t in a nearby library. Access to research is a real problem, particularly for practitioners and policy makers. The fact is that research can only be useful if it is used, and it can only be used if it is accessible.
In this webinar we talk about the different types of Open Access and how depositing your research outputs into Minerva Access can enhance your research visibility.
- Types of Open Access
- Minerva Elements + Minerva Access
- Benefits of readership, citations, funder compliance and long-term access
- University support (and what happens behind the scenes)
- How to track your downloads
- Help resources
Questions are welcome and will be addressed at the end of the session.
This session is designed for the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE), but all University staff and students are welcome to attend.
Presenter: Dimity Flanagan (Manager, Scholarly Communications) is responsible for promoting open scholarship at the University in order to ensure University of Melbourne research is disseminated as widely as possible.
