We are a group of volunteer CSD scientists and clinicians passionate about bridging the gap between scientific research and clinical practice.

Our 2023 goal is to nurture our ambassador programs in educating clinicians on legal and free ways to access research and increasing researchers' knowledge of self-archiving and "green" open-access options.

WHY? Our field relies on high-quality, peer-reviewed research to support evidence-based practice. Yet, much of our work remains inaccessible to practitioners, researchers, and people in the community who are not affiliated with universities or national organizations.

By teaching CSD scientists how to self-archive and educating clinicians on how to access research, we can empower our colleagues to make research accessibility the norm in our field. Because when free, legal versions of our field's best research are made available to the public, it can improve the sustainable value of our work.

We're all about self-archiving

Did you know that paying open access fees isn't the only way to make your research legally free to access? 

Another option is to self-archive a version of your manuscript on a personal or institutional website. This is known as "green" open access.
