Open access provides considerable benefits for both producers and users of scholarly and creative works. However, the open access revolution has not developed evenly among the disciplines. The reasons, challenges, and benefits surrounding open access in the creative disciples in particular are demonstrably different from those in science, technology, and medicine (STM). Drawing on case studies, recent initiatives at OCAD University, and the scholarly literature, this presentation will discuss the unique landscape of open access in creative disciplines, such as art and design, arguing that its benefits are worth the unique challenges.
