General information about OA
Open access publishing permits free access to publications ranging from refereed journal-articles (in SCI-listed journals) to theses and research results.
Published articles reach a much larger audience.
In most cases authors keep the copyright of their works, therefore they can reuse their work, e.g. for courses or conferences.
Many open access journals are nowadays listed in the Science Citation Index and have a Journal Impact Factor in the Journal Citation Reports.
