Since March 2021, all Virginia Tech researchers can provide immediate open access to the accepted version of scholarly articles through the university’s repository, VTechWorks, regardless of their copyright transfer agreement. This session helps researchers understand and use the policy, including version preparation, ways to deposit, and article discovery.  Open access to peer reviewed research is vital to scholars and citizens globally, and authors benefit through greater readership, downloads, and citations.  This session is open to all faculty, staff, and students.
