Do you have a publication that you would like to make freely available, expanding your impact, and really getting your work out there? 

The University Libraries can help you share your work -- even if you do not currently own the copyright. Leveraging self-archiving policies, your published work can become open access at no cost. We have a team of expert information professionals ready to investigate your options and deliver their findings-- we are ready to support you with our knowledge of copyright, connections with publishers, and understanding of research impact. 

Whether you want to expand the social impact of your work or you are interested in scholarship for the public good, Green Open Access is a low barrier solution that can help you achieve your publishing goals. Green Open Access is a model for exposing your research to a broader audience that is free of charge; in this model, a copy of your submitted or accepted manuscript is deposited in an institutional or disciplinary repository and shared openly with the world. 

Free Your Paper!, the University libraries' new Green Open Access service, is available to you as a UR Community member.  We can help increase your research impact, preserve your work, and ensure access to your research for all. 

Fill out the form and a librarian will investigate your options. We'll get in touch with potential next steps and do our best to Free Your Paper.
