Discoverability. Works in InSPIRe are discoverable by major search engines which increases the visibility of your work. Content creators who opt to share their work through InSPIRe can log into their InSPIRe accounts and view how often their work has been downloaded.
Systemic Equity. Making your research freely available to anyone with internet access, reduces financial barriers to information. This is particularly true with previously published scholarship often locked behind a paywall, rental or subscription fee. Moreover, legal deposits of previously published work to open access repositories like InSPIRe help address some of the legal and political mechanisms that favor corporations at the expense of scholars.
