Open Access journals and books are those that are being published and made freely available. They are not blogs or self-published materials, but go through the vetting and editorial processes for their respective publisher. This means free unrestrectriced online access to peer-review scholarly research, including scholarly journal articles, theses, book chapters and scholarly monographs. For more information about open access and how it applies to you please view the Open Access Guide for Texas Tech.
This also means you will also have access to these materials once you leave Texas Tech. The resources below should be available to you at any time.
