About Open Access

Open Access is a way to publish scholarly information and make it available online to anyone in the world, at absolutely no cost to the reader.

 

By making information freely available in this way, Open Access accelerates research and learning.

 

By reducing the barriers that restrict access to knowledge, Open Access maximises the opportunity for publications to be read and for authors to be recognised for their contribution in their chosen field and beyond.

 

Open Access removes permission barriers: unrestricted use of all published material is made possible thanks to flexible intellectual property regulations for authors.

 

Open Access gives authors much greater worldwide exposure
