Open access (OA) journals are online journals whose articles are accessible free of charge and other barriers immediately upon publication. As journals that meet this definition do not require authors to transfer copyright to them, the articles are usually released under an open licence granted by the author. At the same time, there are many journals who make their content available for use free of charge but who do not grant open licences. OA journals are the primary medium of the so-called “gold road to open access”.
