Open Access Week is a global event initiated in 2007. Its purpose is to promote OA as the new norm in scholarship and research. Stay tuned for details of CSHL's Open Access Week 2021 activities (to be held October 25-31, 2021).
The CSHL Institutional Repository (IR) was created to collect, manage, and preserve the intellectual output produced by CSHL. The IR provides annotation, metadata, topics, and subjects for these materials. The goal is to collect all the works produced by a CSHL scientist throughout his/her career. We collect raw data, code, scripts, software, manuscripts, theses, presentations, posters, video, and audio files; as well as bibliographic information on all CSHL faculty, researchers, and graduate students. Depositing your research into the IR makes it available to other researchers and scientists as well as the general public beyond CSHL.
CHSL hosts two preprint servers, BioRxiv and medRxiv. These servers will allow you to submit articles before peer review and publication to seek feedback from your fellow scientists and to make your research available faster. Many research journals allow (or encourage!) the posting of preprints. Posting a preprint is a great way to make your work Open Access.
CSHL Library and Archives supports the Open Access movement. This page outlines several of our initiatives in support of open access.
