  19. 19. How do we achieve Open Access? The terms are confusing…
  20. 20. Green/gold/hybrid • Gold Open Access – Open access at the time of publication. Gold Open Access can be considered to be 'born Open Access'. Fully Open Access journals sometimes (but not always) charge a fee for publication. • Green Open Access – Making a version of work available in an open access repository. These can be institutional such as the Cambridge Repository or subject based, such as arXiv, PubMed Central, RePEc or SSRN. Green Open Access can be considered to be 'secondary Open Access'. • Hybrid journals – Hybrid journals are subscription journals that charge an extra fee to make a specific article Open Access while the remainder of the journal remains behind a paywall. This type of Gold Open Access is always accompanied by a fee.
  21. 21. Do publishers allow green? http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/
  22. 22. Nature
  23. 23. Versions matter • Submitted Version – Sometimes called a pre-print. The version of the work the author submits to the publisher • Author Accepted Manuscript – The author's final, peer reviewed and corrected manuscript, usually created in Word or LaTeX. Sometimes called a post-print. • Version of Record – The publisher’s pdf containing the style and design of the journal

  29. 29. A social networking site is NOT an open access repository • http://osc.universityofcalifornia.edu/2015/12/a-social-networking-site-is-not-an- open-access-repository/ • ResearchGate and Academia.edu are social networking platforms whose primary aim is to connect researchers with common interests. • A Facebook or LinkedIn experience for the research community. • Both services are commercial companies. Although Academia.edu has a “.edu” URL, it isn’t run by a higher education institution. The domain name was registered before the rules that would now prohibit this use went into effect, and the address was grandfathered in and later sold to the company.
