Open Access at Trinity
The Trinity University Open Access Policy encourages faculty authors to retain non-commercial copyright for their scholarly publications and provides them with the means to negotiate those rights with their publishers. Additionally, Open Access facilitates the sharing of peer-reviewed research through Trinity's digital repository (Digital Commons @ Trinity), which provides broad, free access to a faculty author's scholarly work.
The Open Access Policy at Trinity depends for its effectiveness on faculty authors granting to the university permission to upload digital copies of their scholarly publications to Trinity's digital repository. This website provides information on how to retain non-commercial copyright for your scholarly publications and how to submit copies of your publications to Trinity's digital repository.
