Meaning of Open Access

What does Open Access mean? Simply that everything that we publish is freely available online throughout the world, for you to read, download, copy, distribute, and use (with attribution) any way you wish. No permission is required. Read a detailed definition. If you haven’t got time to read this, there are two things you need to know:

(1) Authors retain copyright, under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

(2) No permission is required to use – or reuse – the content.

Advantages of Open Access

High availability and high visibility

The biggest advantage of the OA model is that it provides free, full-text and peer reviewed articles to all interested readers. The high availability, high visibility and timeliness features of its contents lead to its higher citation impact. [1]
