Expanding the reach of University of Windsor research without financial, legal, or technical barriers is a top priority for the Leddy Library; however, researchers keen on publishing their research articles as open access often encounter steep publishing fees from commercial publishers.

The Leddy Library has entered new license agreements with the journal publishers Elsevier, Oxford University Press, and De Gruyter to cover or discount these fees for campus authors.
