Digital Commons OA Collection

Yesterday we discussed graduate students’ options for publishing OA and CC licensed works on Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech, but this isn’t the only group of husky authors that go the extra mile to make their work accessible and reusable at no cost to the public – numerous members of the Michigan Tech community do!

The Open Educational Resources collection on Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech highlights a variety of faculty, staff, and student works that were published on the repository or through 3rd party publishers that are available full-text to the world. In only the last month, these works have been downloaded over 25,000 times from 150 different countries, showing the vast reach that open scholarship has.
