Title: Unlocking scholarly communication: what is this thing called Open Access
Authors: Swan, Alma
Contributor: Carr, Leslie
Keywords: research impactOpen Accessrepositoriesself-archiving
Issue Date: 18-May-2007
When you have put months or years of effort into producing your research findings, have carefully written them up as an article, and submitted it for peer review, what would you prefer - that your article is visible to peers in a limited number of universities around the world, or that it is visbile to all your peers, wherever they might be? Open Access ensures that your work can be seen by anyone who might be interested in reading and using it, raising the possible number of citations and increasing your impact. Alma describes the ways to achieve this exposure for your work, and what it can do for you.
Alma and Les then conduct a debate, highlighting the common misunderstandings, worries, and fears about Open Access. The aim is to help listeners to see how the process works and how it does not conflict with any of their usual communication and publishing processes.
