Freely available research publications
Open access (OA) publishing means that research results are published in such a way that they are freely accessible online. There are two ways to approach OA: the “golden road” by publishing in open access journals, and the “green road” by depositing a copy of an article in an open access repository, also known as self-archiving.
Lund University's policy for publishing encourages researchers to publish open access as far as possible. This is to increase the visibility, use and impact of reserach. The policy has recently been revised and updated and more detailed information will be available shortly with a link to the new document.
Many of the large research funders also require that research results be published so that they are freely accessible to everyone.
We have compiled information in the following pages based on the two routes to OA: publishing directly in an OA journal (the golden road) and self-archiving (the green road).
