Building an Open Future

Not content to wait for an open future for research to be built, the University of Bristol Library helps build it! Every year we put a portion of our funding behind open research initiatives and infrastructure, in order to build a future research culture where all research is available to all people without barriers.

Diamond open access

These presses are free to read and free to publish in, making them the most accessible form of open access publishing. Diamond OA publishing still has costs that must be covered, and we are proud to help support them.

Open Repositories

While the University has its own research portal, there are other scholarly repositories that are significant to specific research communities. Supporting them ensures these key open access routes remain available to researchers in those disciplines.

Infrastructure Projects

These projects support the "behind-the-scenes" processes of open research. Supporting them ensures that the systems we rely on are as effective as possible.
