There are two types of Open Access publishing
Making the material available by self-archiving ("Green OA")
- You have already published an article in a peer reviewed journal, following the HiOA Open Access policy by making a copy of the publication available in the HiOA Science Archive ODA by uploading it to Cristin.
The version archived in ODA is usually your latest manuscript draft, following the peer-review but ahead of publication. Most publishing houses permit some kind of self-archiving.
The Learning Center and Library discusses the rights of open publishing with the individual publisher.
Open Access publishing (”Gold OA”)
You publish your article directly in an open, peer-reviewed journal or book series.
How to publish gold Open Access
- Find an Open Access journal within your subject area
- Do you need money for the article processing charge (APC) or book processing charge (BPC)? Or for the storage of open research data? HiOA will cover your Open Access publication fees.
- Finish by depositing your article in Cristin.
