On March 9, 2011, the UNT Faculty Senate voted to adopt an Open Access Policy which relates specifically to peer-reviewed journal articles. In addition to housing the peer-reviewed journal articles covered under the UNT Open Access Policy, UNT Scholarly Works offers an outlet for scholars to archive and provide access to all of their research and scholarship, including working papers, presentations, academic posters, artwork - the scholarly output of your discipline. Items in UNT Scholarly Works may be made Open Access (available for public use), or restricted to the UNT Community. Optional levels of licensing are also available for all items. For more information on Open Access and the UNT Open Access Policy, visit the Open Access @ UNT website.
