Open Access Overview

OA publishing is web accessible, free of charge, and free from licensing restrictions. OA means a work can be widely shared and cited.

OA Rationale

OA publishing allows work to be widely discovered, freely read, and frequently cited. OA is fully compatible with peer review; though some OA journals are not peer reviewed. OA may reduces library costs by eliminating excessive subscription fees to boost publisher profit margins, but OA is not free (costs to run peer review, editing, distribution must be covered).  

Alternative Journal Title & Article Level Metrics

Open Access publishing allows an article published anywhere, not only those published in prestigious journals, to make a difference. Explore these  tools to expand academic assessment to include the impacts and values of published OA articles.
