Open Access Policy

 Summary of the SUNY Cortland Open Access Policy:

The SUNY Cortland Open Access Policy provides SUNY Cortland Authors with a way to maintain legal control over their research articles while, at the same time, making their work freely and widely available to the public. SUNY Cortland Authors are not required to publish in open access journals, or to pay fees or charges to publish. The policy asks SUNY Cortland Authors to deposit a version of each article into Digital Commons@Cortland, a digital repository maintained by Memorial Library. For each work deposited in the Digital Commons, the author grants to SUNY Cortland nonexclusive permission to make available that article for the purpose of open access, thereby the deposited work will be made freely and openly available to the public. Items that cannot be shared will not be posted to the institutional repository.
