Open Access

Library can help you to choose which journal to publish in and help you to assess the impact factor of the journals.

If you have published something or want to have your work available on open access there are a number of ways to achieve this through:

  • Self archiving in CIFOR institutional repository
  • Self archiving in a subject based repository
  • Publishing in Open Access Journals

Publishing contract/agreement

If you are going to publish with a commercial publisher, you should read your publishing contract carefully as you may be signing away more than you think.

If your publishing contract does not stipulate or consider open access archiving of your work you can ask to have an addendum added to your agreement. See the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Author Addendum form (PDF) or the one that specifically designed by CGIAR for you.
