Student support grows for open access

Share this on social media:

The student Right to Research Coalition now represents more than five million students in the USA and around the world. This group of national, international, and local student associations advocates for governments, universities, and researchers to adopt open-access practices. It now includes some of the most prominent student organisations from across the world.

Additions to the coalition since its launch this summer include: the United States Student Association (USSA), the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS), the National Graduate Council of the Canadian Federation of Students, the International Association of Political Science Students, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Graduate Student Council, the University of Minnesota Graduate and Professional Student Assembly, the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Graduate Student Association, and the Student Government Association of St. Olaf College.
