Congratulations to Dr Brian Rodriguez (centre), School of Physics, on winning our recent Open Access week tweet competition!
Here is what he had to say about Open Access and our repository in relation to his research:
“As most of my research is publicly funded, it is imperative that my results are publicly available. Open access removes barriers to access and encourages innovation and discovery, ultimately advancing knowledge. Open access has the added benefit of encouraging me to write papers with a wider audience in mind, hopefully improving the clarity and impact of our collaborative work. Research Repository UCD in particular provides increased visibility to my work and tools to track and manage these resources. Their team helps navigate all of the copyright issues, making it easy to add publications to the repository.”
