: Open Access for all UTS ePRESS Journals

To aid our goals of improving the reach, discovery and impact of our journals’ content, UTS ePRESS is implementing an Open Access Policy across its suite of journals.

The introduction of the Open Access Policy means trialling a uniform Creative Commons Attribution License, and the inclusion of Digital Object Identifier systems (DOIs) in references and ORCID numbers for all authors. An ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a unique digital identifier for authors that can be used by publishers, research funders, institutions and other stakeholders to reliably and easily identify researchers and scholars in the same way that ISBNs and DOIs identify books and articles.

The collective impact of these important changes will facilitate increased readership, usage and citation of an author's work, as well as improve tracking and analysis of impact.

For more information, see the Public Knowledge Project, which has designed the Open Journal System, which is freely distributed, as well as other software that support the open access publishing of scholarly resources.
