Open Access
for dummies
A brief guide
Andrea Hajek, PhD
Your Editing Alternative
What is open access (OA)?
• When your publication is made available online
to anyone, at no cost for the readers
• Why is this important? Because your work is
made accessible to more people, and therefore
has a wider reach
• Also, if you have a funder, they will be glad to
see that the funded research has broader impact,
precisely because it is available to a wider
audience

editors/authorandreviewertutorials/open-access/what-is-open-access/10286522
Types of OA: gold
• The final version of an article is freely and
permanently accessible for everyone,
immediately after publication
• Copyright is retained by the author
• The author pays the journal a fee
• Can be published either in fully open access
journals or hybrid journals (i.e. subscription-
based journals that offer an open access option)
Source: Springer, What is open access? https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-
editors/authorandreviewertutorials/open-access/what-is-open-access/10286522
Types of OA: green
• A version of an article is put into a repository or
on the author's institutional website*, making it
freely accessible for everyone
• NB the version that can be deposited into a
repository is dependent on the funder or
publisher
• The copyright usually sits with the publisher
• No fees for the author
