What is Open Access

Open access (OA) in its purest sense is making literature free online without any fees or restrictions due to copyright or licenses.- Kevin Smith, Scholarly Communications Officer at Duke University

Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. – Peter Suber, Research Professor of Philosophy at Earlham College

Open access as being publicly free on the Internet, allowing users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full text of articles without legal, financial or technical barriers. - The Budapest Open Access Initiative

Open access contributions include original scientific research results, raw data and metadata, source materials, digital representations of pictorial and graphical materials and scholarly multimedia material
