Open Access

In this guide, learn about discovering freely available research and find ways to make your work open access.

Open Access Fund

The USC Open Access Fund has been suspended due to budgetary constraints. This fund, administered by the University Libraries, has provided financial support to facilitate public and immediate access to research published by University of South Carolina scholars.  

We hope to reopen the fund in the future and will provide updates on this page. If you would like to support the initiative, you can make a one-time or monthly gift to the Open Access Fund
