Open Access & Scholarly Communication Website

Open Access (OA) provides direct, free and online availability of research output without copyright restrictions by publishers and increases the visibility of a publication enormously.

Within the frame of the “Koç University Open Access Policy” in 2014, Green Road Open Access publishing is mandatory for all authors/co-authors at Koç University. The authors/co-authors must input the final accepted author’s version of a peer-reviewed article with the required metadata in the Koç University Institutional Repository.

Koç University Suna Kıraç Library endorses the principles of Open Access and seeks to make the University’s research output research as openly available and widely distributed as possible.

The Library Open Access Team offers support, advice, presentations, and workshops for all your requirements on OA.   If you have any questions about OA, please contact the Library’s Open Access Team:
