Self-Archiving FAQ

Various authors, Budapest Open Access Initiative, May 23, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

One way to promote open scholarship is to create free (or cheap) journals. The other way is to self-archive. To self-archive is to deposit a digital document in a publicly accessible website, and as the article says, preferably an Open Archives Initiative (OAI) compliant Eprint Archive. This FAQ covers everything from how to do it to why and the relation between self-archiving and publishing. Too much work? Download and use the Eprints software for creating OAI-compliant archives for self-archiving. If it were any easier we'd have to send someone over to write the paper for you.
