AIU "Open Acces" Initiative

Sharing knowledge is a vital component in the growth and advancement of our society in a sustainable and responsible way. In order to contribute, AIU is implementing an "Open Access" Initiative with academic work, select courses, scientific research, projects, and other scholarly work by students, faculty, and other contributors seeking increased access to Higher Education by making learning materials and research Publicly Accessible. Through Open Access, AIU and other leading institutions through out the world are tearing down the barriers to access and use research literature and academic materials. Our organization is interested in the dissemination of advances in scientific research fundamental to the proper operation of a modern society, in terms of community awareness, empowerment, health and wellness, sustainable development, economic advancement, and optimal functioning of health, education and other vital services. AIU’s Mission and Vision is consistent with the vision expressed in the Budapest Open Access Initiative and Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities. In case you can not view the table at the bottom of the page, some of the Student Publications are also available in html.

AIU "Open Access" Initiative

Therefore, we intend to make progress by:

  • encouraging our students, faculty, researchers, grant recipients to publish their work according to the principles of the open access paradigm.
  • make course content, lectures, assignments and other course materials available to the public.
  • encouraging the holders of cultural heritage to support open access by providing their resources on the Internet.
  • advocating that open access publication be recognized in promotion and tenure evaluation.
  • advocating the intrinsic merit of contributions to an open access infrastructure by software tool development, content provision, metadata creation, or the publication of individual articles.
