    • How did Open Access Happen?
      • The internet made sharing scholarly electronic journals cheaper and easier than in print.
      • Prices of journals skyrocketed during the 1990s. Few people had access to most scholarly work.
    • How does Open Access work?
      • OA journals charge authors for article submissions.
      • Traditional subscriptions are eliminated.
      • Some journals are a combination of OA and subscription content.
      • Some articles are kept as a subscription for a limited period of time (embargoed), then made freely available.
    • Open Access
      • Free, immediate, permanent, full-text, online access to digital scientific and scholarly material (primarily research articles published in peer-reviewed journals) for everyone.
      • Anyone, anywhere, anytime* can link, read, download, store, print and use the digital contents of the article.
      • * embargo periods may apply

    • What does this mean for Libraries?
      • Fewer traditional subscriptions.
      • More journals with a mixture of Open Access and subscription content, usually within a single issue.
      • Embargo periods for journal articles will vary depending on the journal and author choice.
      • Authors have more direct contact with publishers – will this cut out the library?
