Creative Commons

October 21-27th is Open Access Week, an event dedicated to free, immediate, online access to scholarly research. Creative Commons, which you may have seen on such as social media sites as flickr, provides essential tools to promote this type of access to research, education and artistic creations.

According to their website (http://creativecommons.org/about) "Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of creativity and knowledge through free legal tools. If you want to give people the right to share, use and even build upon a work you've created, you should consider publishing it under a Creative Commons license."

There are a number of works in Albertsons Library's ScholarWorks which were published under a Creative Commons license, including a book chapter by Boise State's provost, Dr. Martin Schimpf. Here are some examples:

Caspase-Cleaved Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein Within Cerebellar White Matter of the Alzheimer's Disease Brain

Innovation as Determining Factor of Post-M&A Performance: The Case of Vietnam

Reconfigurable Threshold Logic Gates using Memristive Devices
