Open Scholarship

Faculty, staff, and students at Texas State University produce a broad array of scholarly, research and creative endeavors including data, research publications, literary and artistic works, and educational materials. The University Libraries encourage an open scholarly ecosystem and support for those interested in making their work open, or freely accessible for use in teaching, learning, and research. 

An open scholarly ecosystem promotes knowledge equity, advances public good and the progress of scholarship, meets the needs of current and future scholars, and enhances the impact of research around the world.

Upcoming Events

The University Libraries Open Scholarship Team offers workshops, webinars, and other events throughout the year to assist researchers in navigating the open scholarship ecosystem and increasing their research impact.
