UGA Libraries support for Open Access publishing agreements
The Open Access publishing model provides free and immediate access to publications. The UGA Libraries developed agreements with many publishers providing access for members of the UGA community to read journal content at no charge and for UGA authors to publish journal content at no charge, avoiding Article Processing Charges (APCs) for their accepted manuscripts.
