Faculty & Instructor Resources: Scholarly Communication & OA


Scholarly communication is the system in which information or data are created (by scholars), distributed (by publishers), disseminated, preserved, and organized (by libraries). The soaring cost of published information has put this system at risk.

Scholarly Communication

Use the UC Berkeley Library, Scholarly Communication, guide to review the UC Open Access Policy, and the UC Publications Management System (UCPMS).

Visit the University of California's Office of Scholarly Communication to find new publishing models, copyright information, repositories and more.

The eScholarship repository to find out how you can have more direct control over the creation and dissemination of your scholarship.

Consult a Librarian and/or the links above for more information.
