     OPEN ACCESS

OPEN ACCESS

Open access (OA) refers to freely available, online information. Open access scholarly literature (journal articles and books) is accessible to everyone, with no access fees.

Open access (OA) publishing involves making scholarly literature (typically articles) freely available online by depositing the publication (often pre-prints) in an institutional repository (e.g. MSpace) or by paying a commercial journal provider (e.g. Taylor & Francis) a fee to have them make your article freely available. 


How do the Libraries support Open Access?
