Ocean managers, policymakers, and NGOs routinely face barriers to scientific knowledge: they simply can’t afford costly subscriptions to traditional academic journals. Studies have found that these financial barriers result in less primary science being used in on-the-ground environmental management plans.
MarXiv offers a way to increase access to pay-walled academic literature in a legal manner. An author who retains copyright on their submitted manuscript, known colloquially as a preprint, may upload the manuscript to MarXiv. Anyone may then download and read the preprint free of charge, legally, forever. No more time wasted begging the author for a copy, and no need to “pirate” the research in a not-so-legal manner.
But MarXiv isn’t just for preprints! You can deposit your group’s technical reports and Open Access publications, as well. Deposit your report in MarXiv to get a free DOI, a long-term storage solution, and ensure your work is indexed in Google Scholar.
