“Research leads to breakthroughs, and communicating the results of research is what allows us to turn breakthroughs into better lives.”*

No one understands this better than the non-profit organizations that work to better our communities. Non-profits often cannot afford access to the latest research in peer-reviewed academic journals because those articles are locked behind paywalls. That is a strong argument for public, open access to research.

Listen to what East Tennessee non-profits told us when they came to UT’s John C. Hodges Library for free workshops on finding and accessing the latest research.
