Open Access Scholarly Publishing

This guide is an introduction to Open Access (OA) publishing principles and practices, written for University of Hull researchers.

Authors and research funders have a shared vision of a future where the outcomes of research projects can be read online by anyone who's interested, without paywalls or restrictive licence terms. Academic publishers are adapting their business models to support this goal. While this transition is underway, authors and readers can face challenges identifying the cost-free routes to authoritative academic platforms.
