Open Access

Open Access means making the most of communication technologies like the web, and providing free online access to scholarly research.

Benefits of making your research open access include:

  • increased visibility, citations, and impact for your research profile
  • more effective dissemination of your research outputs
  • granting reuse permission allows others to build on your work

There are two main ways of achieving open access:

  • Publish with an open access journal (we refer to this as gold open access)
  • Deposit the final, author-created version of your research outputs in SURE (green open access)
