What is 'OA'?

Open Access Logo

  • Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. 
  • OA is compatible with copyright, peer review, revenue (even profit), print, preservation, prestige, quality, career-advancement, indexing, and other features and supportive services associated with conventional scholarly literature.
  • Many OA initiatives focus on publicly-funded research.
  • OA literature is not free to produce or publish.
  • OA is compatible with peer review, and all the major OA initiatives for scientific and scholarly literature insist on its importance.
