Why OA is so Important to
Students

To break down barriers:
* The Right to Research Coalition:
http://riqhttoresearch.orq/
- Access to Research is a Student Right
* Learning and inquiry are impeded when
scholars lack access
* Provides access to global research
* OA levels the educational playing field

The Public's Need for OA

* Concept of "public access": taxpayers, federal
agencies, and universities pay twice for funded
research

* Increases the public's ROI in research

* Open access reduces barriers and can foster
collaboration and research advances.
