Open Access is about the free access of publicly funded research, i.e. free access to read and use academic literature, including the possibility of unrestricted downloads from academic publications.
With Open Access, all interested parties will have ready access to published research. Access will not be dependent, as is often the case in the current publishing system, on whether you have personally (or via your library) subscribed to a particular journal.
Open Access has no influence on the quality assurances that form part of the publishing process (peer review).
With Open Access (OA), there are basically two models to follow: 'the green model' and 'the golden model'.
Det Kgl. Bibliotek has entered a four-year agreement with Wiley from 2022 to 2025. An agreement that, among other things, ensures more options for open access publishing.
Aarhus University (AU) supports the idea of the national Open Access strategy and strives to create free access for all citizens, researchers and companies to research publications produced as part of research conducted at AU. Open Access offers direct access to published research results for everyone. Access does not depend on users having subscribed to a journal, either personally or via their library.
