Open Access Week 2021

Open Access week logo


Open Access Week is a global event that highlights the benefits of open access for the academic and research community. In celebration, we take a moment to recognize faculty superstars who have shared their research in Digital Commons, Pepperdine's repository for scholarly work selected and submitted by Pepperdine departments, centers, and faculty members. Digital Commons is an open access platform, meaning all of the content is free, with none of it hidden behind a paywall that requires an expensive subscription to retrieve.

Our librarians have been working on a major research and outreach campaign to broaden the readership and reach of Pepperdine faculty who have recently published in journals available only to those with access to library databases. The great news is that we can include most articles in Digital Commons.

After reviewing each journal's rules and embargo period (usually in the 1-2 year range), we've reached out to faculty members and requested the accepted version of their article manuscripts to upload into Digital Commons. The benefit to faculty members is that articles that are part of Digital Commons get indexed in Google -- in full text -- thus broadening the reach of their scholarly work.

Several faculty members have responded in favor of our request to provide us with the accepted version of their article for uploading into Digital Commons:

More Faculty Open Access Already in Digital Commons

Librarians working on this project discovered many instances of Pepperdine faculty who decided to write their article for an open access journal, like those from the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), and some whose work appears as open access in hybrid journals. The list below is just a sampling of our Pepperdine faculty who appear in Pepperdine's Open Access Publications section of Digital Commons.
