  2. 2. 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 Source: Springer, What is open access? https://www.springer.com/gp/authors- editors/authorandreviewertutorials/open-access/what-is-open-access/10286522
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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 Source: Springer, What is open access? https://www.springer.com/gp/authors- editors/authorandreviewertutorials/open-access/what-is-open-access/10286522
