Publish your work so that it’s open access

Publish your research so that it’s open access. There are a number of options available.

Option A: Publish in an open access journal. There are many journals to choose from.

Option B: Pay for the open access option when publishing in non-OA journals. Here are some traditional journal publishers that have OA options:

Option C: Retain the rights to your published research. Modify the publisher’s copyright transfer agreement to allow you to:

  • retain your copyright to the abstract and complete document, and allow others to reuse and distribute without permission as long as they cite appropriately;
  • load the post-print and/or published version of the article on a freely accessible Web site or COH research profile.

    The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) definitions of open access, research journals, and quality control can be found here. DOAJ defines open access as “the right of users to ‘read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles,'[1]” which is the Budapest Open Access Initiative open access definition.
