What is an Open Access Journal?

Our Library Catalog Mandarin Logo

"Open access (OA) books and journals are scholarly materials that are available online to the reader "without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself." While open access journals are freely available to the reader, there are still costs associated with the publication and production of such journals."
