Green and Gold Print Page

Two main OA models

Two predominant models have emerged within the Open Access movement:

  • Green OA = self archiving
    The Green OA route means that the author publishes in any journal and archives a copy (post print) in the institution’s repository

  • Gold OA = Open Access journal
    The Gold OA route means the author publishes his/her research in an Open Access journal where it will be available immediately along with all other articles on the publisher's website
