University of Ottawa Press publishes collection of open-access books

August 3, 2010

Last Friday, the University of Ottawa Press (UOP) made 36 of its books available free to the online community, an initiative under the UOP's digital publishing plan. The collection consists of both English- and French-language in-print titles in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. In December, the University of Ottawa launched an open-access program, which includes a commitment to make research easier to consult through its institutional repository, to provide funds to researchers wanting to publish their work in open-access journals, and to award grants for research on the open-access movement. uOttawa News Release
