Week 6 Discussion Board Assignment: Open Access

Since Open Access (OA) may be a new concept for you, I’d like you to take this opportunity to share your thoughts on the reading you just completed that introduces OA and its significance.

  • In your discussion board post, please include the two key takeaways you were asked to write about in your reading notes. As with your journal assignment this week, you can directly quote the reading or paraphrase (in your own words) new ideas you learned.
  • Under each takeaway, provide a 2-3 sentence explanation of its significance to you.
  • Feel free to include anything else you wish in this post regarding your thoughts on Open Access or any questions you have.
