Registry of Open Access Repositories NDLTD: Digital Theses Oxford Open Oxford Open OUP Supports Open Access Oxford University Press (OUP) is mission-driven to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research. We embrace both green and gold open access (OA) publishing to support this mission. A Proven Track Record of Success OUP has been publishing OA content since 2004. We have also successfully launched or taken over high-quality OA titles, including: Genome Biology and Evolution, Journal of Legal Analysis, Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, and Database. OUP facilitates green OA either by allowing authors to deposit versions of their manuscripts in institutional or subject repositories after a specified time period, or depositing the version of record on their behalf. Supporting the Evolution of Open Access Publishing Sustainable, high-quality OA publishing requires either funding to be available to pay for Article Processing Charges, sponsorship, or suitable embargo periods. OUP operates two different open access models:

Thank you for the support. After two years, the Guide was in need of some TLC, so I have recently concluded a reconciliation project of the resources cited to insure that these websites are still live, that they navigate to the appropriate specific pages, and that these resources are indeed (generally speaking) digital image collections. To that end, I removed the relative few websites that have gone dark (good-night NBII LIFE), updated the links on a ton of collections that moved to new URL's, and removed a handful that I believe to be unrelated. I also did my best to maintain the few collections that have been added by community members over the past two years. Finally, I have not had an opportunity to seek out new exemplar digital image collections that may have come online recently. Scott Spicer To Contribute: first, login (Top right hand corner.

Scholarly Publishing - MIT Libraries | Dispelling Myths about Open Access Is it true that Open Access means an article is not copyrighted? No. Choosing to publish through an open access channel does not mean the article is not copyrighted. The same options exist when publishing through an open access channel as when an article is published through a controlled-access (or traditional subscription) model: the author may in some cases be able to retain copyright, or may be required to grant the journal publisher copyright. There is no direct and clean relationship between open access journals and copyright policy. Some publishers of hybrid journals allow authors to retain copyright for articles published under their open access option; others will still ask that you transfer copyright. Even when self-publishing on the web, the author has copyright to the content. Is it true that Open Access articles and journals are not peer-reviewed? No. Most major publishers now have an open access option for individual articles. No. No. No. No. No.
