Support for Open Access

GW Libraries is committed to advocacy and support of Open Access (OA) publishing and scholarship. We do this through institutional memberships, support of external OA initiatives and projects, development and maintenance of GW's institutional repository ScholarSpace, publication of OA journals for GW faculty and students, and support for the GW Open Access Resolution.
