How Can I Share My Work? A Review of the Open Access Policies of IS Journals

We conducted a literature review of the open access (OA) policies of IS journals which indicates they are adapting to the evolving research landscape that incorporates open science practices. And just as the IS journals are changing, IS researchers need to change too. However, while different entities can offer guidance, help, and nudges to authors to try and promote the practice of OA, it will not become a norm until the IS researchers themselves adopt it into their own practices. That is, they need to reconsider their practices by moving beyond the academic paper as the only output of a research project and consider how other research components they create can be made freely available as an open artefact. In doing so, not only can they increase their research outputs but also develop their academic profile while making opportunities for new projects and collaborations.
