Open Access VIS
A collection of open access visualization research at the VIS 2017 conference.
Goals of this site
- Collect openly accessible papers, data, and other materials from VIS before the conference.
- Encourage authors to post papers, data, and materials.
- Encourage posting on reliable open access repositories to avoid "link rot".
- Get an overview of how many VIS papers are inaccessible outside of a pay wall.

How do I make my work open access?
I suggest using the Open Science Foundation (OSF) to post your work.
Sign up. Create a new project. And upload your paper, data, and materials. It takes under 5 minutes.
You can also connect your OSF project to a GitHub repository to avoid keeping track of multiple repositories.
Once you're done, make a GitHub issue with the URLs for your work.
What counts as a reliable open access repository?
The item(s) in the repository (pdf, dataset, code, etc.) needs to be freely accessible and have a permanent identifier.
The following domains are currently counted:
The Open Science Foundation (OSF) is suggested because it is general purpose and can store documents, materials, and data together. However, other open access repositories or institutional repositories are equally valid.
I see missing info, incorrect info, or a bug. How can I fix it?
Help filling in missing or incorrect info is greatly appreciated. The data and code are on GitHub.
Thumbnails are kept separately for now. Information for adding or improving thumbnails is also on GitHub.
