Open access / open science support by Kyoto University Library Network

Open access to research results (papers and research data), bulletins, and rare materials

The Library Network promotes open access to both research results and rare materials through “Kyoto University Research Information Repository (KURENAI)” and “Kyoto University Rare Materials Digital Archive” respectively.

Open access is not limited to making academic papers, which are the results of research, freely available to everyone, but also refers to a broad concept that includes the publication of research data and the digitization of rare materials.

This website provides information on support for open access, such as making papers, works, and bulletins by researchers at Kyoto University open access, and sharing research data as evidence of such research achievements, and digitizing rare materials held by Kyoto University.

2Open access to bulletins

Bulletins can be shared as open access electronic journals on KURENAI. You will be able to search the articles of the bulletins on CiNii Articles, Google Scholar, etc., and the visibility of articles will be improved. You can also assign DOIs (international standard identifiers that allow permanent access and interoperability of articles, etc.).
