Open Access Resources for York Students
The following list arises from the Open Pedagogies Fellowship at the Graduate Center Library and commits to the critical values of open access scholarship. The list focuses on resources and essay repositories to introduce undergraduates to the processes and ethics of Open Access with the aim of encouraging a more critical production and consumption of scholarly discourse. These journals accept faculty-mentored research by undergraduates, welcomes students into scholarly conversations within their disciplines and puts them in dialogue with editors for the publication of their articles. We hope these resources will also facilitate and motivate writing within your classes, expand discussions and encourage critical thinking among your students.
The list gathers repositories of Open Access Journals that receive undergraduate’s submissions organized according to York’s schools and departments. You will also find a small guide on how to access OA data, thoughts on the advantages of using these resources in class and further resources for Open Access and Anti-racist Pedagogies.
