Guelph Research Shop adopts Open Access guidelines

With assistance from the Research Enterprise and Scholarly Communications Team a part of the University of Guelph Library, the Research Shop adopts Open Access guidelines!

The Research Shop is another name for the Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship (ICES). ICES fosters collaborative and mutually beneficial community-university research partnerships. ICES draws on strong traditions of community engagement and socially responsive research within the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences (CSAHS) at the University of Guelph.

ICES builds capacity for community-engaged scholarship by strengthening faculty and student engagement with local, national and international communities of interest, addressing faculty reward development, and training faculty and students in knowledge mobilization.

The guidelines read:

To maximize the impact of research, outputs need to be made as broadly accessible as possible by enabling free universal access.
The Research Shop encourages researchers to endorse the concept of open access by depositing scholarly output in an open access repository such as the University of Guelph’s institutional repository, the Atrium.
