Open Access

The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto (OISE) is committed to making its research and scholarship widely and publicly available by disseminating and making it available to scholars, educators, policymakers, and the public.

To this end, OISE's Faculty Council passed its OISE/UT Open Access Policy Statement (see PDF below), which encourages faculty to make the results of their research readily and openly accessible. OISE's Faculty Council unanimously adopted the policy in March, 2012 after extensive consultations within the OISE community.

OISE faculty members are disseminating and preserving their research via channels such as the University of Toronto's T-Space repository and open access journals. OISE's graduate students are also driven to make their work widely and publicly available. The OISE community is also sharing research through various open access journals such as Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society, Master of Teaching Research Journal, Critical Intersections in Education, and others.
