Our second guide, aimed primarily at scholarly authors, works through the ins and outs of open access publishing. When does open access work best for authors? How do institutional and funder open access mandates work? What are the differences between the different kinds of open access publishing, and why do they matter? Understanding Open Access is here to help answer these questions and more.
Now printed and bound, a matte cover and handy thumb index make Understanding Open Access a fine addition to any library of author resources.
As with all Authors Alliance guides, Understanding Open Access is also available as a free digital download under a Creative Commons license. Click here to learn more about the digital guide.
