The University of North Texas has joined OA2020, a global alliance of institutions led by the Max Planck Digital Library in Munich, that have committed to taking active steps to drive the transformation of the system for publishing works of scholarship. By signing the OA2020 Expression of Interest, President Neal Smatresk has pledged that UNT will convert resources currently spent on journal subscriptions into support for sustainable models for publishing in open access, meaning articles are made free to read and share rather than available only through subscriptions. UNT is the seventh US institution and the first outside of California to sign the Expression of Interest.
