Our institutional repository, UVM ScholarWorks, collects, preserves, and shares the scholarly and creative works of University of Vermont faculty, staff, students, and their collaborators.
UVM faculty (and students!) can deposit scholarly work that can be made available free of charge to other scholars through Google Scholar and other sources. This is Green OA and a cost-effective alternative to Hybrid OA article processing charges.
Once deposited, ScholarWorks offers excellent download metrics for authors including date and geographic location of download and (if pertinent) the institution where the article was downloaded. Results can be viewed in map, table, or graph format.
The main types or levels of open access (OA) are:
Categories denoting various levels of access and reuse continue to evolve and come in and out of use. Other types you might see include: Libre, Gratis, Delayed, Black.
