|There are two ways to
provide open access to your research output:
|(1)(“Gold”) Publish your article
in an Open Access (OA) Journal. An OS Journal makes all its articles
accessible online for free, and recovers its costs from author/institution
publication fees per article published, instead of user/institution
access-tolls for accessing the journal.
| Of the 24,000 peer-reviewed journals
that are published worldwide, however, fewer than 1000 (<5%) are OA. So
this “golden” road to OA is not enough.
|(2) (“Green”) If there is no
suitable OA journal for your article, publish it in a conventional Toll
Access (TA) (>95%) but also self-archive it in your university Eprint
