What is open access?
The old world of access to knowledge
The new world of access to knowledge
Difference between subscription and open
access models
• Both have
– Editors, peer review, are indexed in ISI etc, have similar
production processes, obey publication ethics
• OA journals also
– Allow the contents to be immediately freely available online
everywhere in perpetuity
• Different business models
OA in brief
• No subscriptions = no barriers to access
• Published articles immediately available online for
free for everyone!
• Copyright remains with the author
• Major OA publishers - Article Processing Charges
(APCs)
• Support from funding bodies and governmental
agencies
Advantages of open access
• Very high visibility
- Accessible from multiple sites
- Indexed widely, eg PubMed
- No barriers to dissemination
• Quality

submissions
