Open Access

Reasons for Open Access

  • OA transforms knowledge sharing. Academic research can be more widely read and shared, leading to a greater impact on the world. The value of research is maximised through wide use.
  • Rising journal prices creates access barriers to research, and in turn access gaps to valuable information researchers want to see. OA removes such barriers.
  • OA increases a researcher's visibility, with a significant increase in citation as a result.
