Open Access Journals

OA journals are published exclusively on-line and use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. The key attributes of such journals (Suber, 2006) are:

  • OA journals conduct peer review.
  • OA journals typically let authors retain copyright.
  • Some OA journal publishers are non-profit (e.g. Public Library of Science) and some are for-profit (e.g. Biomed Central).
  • Less than half are based on the 'author-pays' model and all have commitment to ensure that ability to pay is not a factor so page charges con be waived.
  • Published on-line.
  • Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of all articles published in the journal (Budapest Open Access Initiative, 2003).
