Resources for Students

As an individual, you may feel limited in your ability to effect change to publishing practices and related academic customs. However, there are many opportunities to get involved in collective action on issues surrounding access to published researchers. One of the best places to start learning about student collective action about academic publishing is the Right to Research Coalition. It hosts a web page with information about national and international students demands for the right to access to research, including timely updates on current developments.
