Open Access (OA) publications are digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.

  • Remove price barriers (subscriptions, licensing fees, etc.) and permission barriers (most copyright and licensing restrictions)
  • Are compatible with peer review, and all the major OA initiatives for scientific and scholarly literature insist on its importance
  • Come in a variety of formats including articles, monographs, data, software, online education, and more
