Open Access refers to online research outputs that are free of all restrictions on access and free of many restrictions on use.
There are two routes to open access:Gold Open Access
Gold Open Access makes the final version of an article freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Copyright for the article is retained by the authors and most of the permission barriers are removed. Most gold open access articles are supported by Article Processing Charges (APCs), rather than through subscriptions. APCs may be paid by the author, the author's institution, or a funding agency.Green Open Access
Green Open Access, known as self-archiving, is the practice of placing a version of an author's manuscript into a repository, making it freely accessible for everyone. The version that can be deposited into a repository is selected at the discretion of the funder or publisher. Unlike Gold Open Access, the copyright for these articles usually sits with the publisher of, or the society affiliated with, the title and there are restrictions as to how the work can be reused.
OAE supports Gold Open Access, and encourages fundings to be made available to support authors.
All articles that are published through Gold Open Access are subject to rigorous peer review, professional editing and production services and will be freely accessible to all on website.
