OA has different approaches, strategies and tactics. This can make it all a bit confusing. We'll take you through the different versions you might come across.
Open Access is a jungle with various ways to make your manuscript openly available. Some authors choose preprints to share their non-peer-reviewed research work faster; others go down the green route by self-archived the author-accepted version of the article in a repository. And then there's open access publishing directly with a publisher, where the final PDF is made openly available immediately on the publisher's website.
Regardless of the route you choose, it can be challenging to understand. That's why we've dedicated today to various versions of OA, taking you through some existing content as well as hosting a brand new webinar on pre-print posting and OA publishing.
Webinars are a fantastic way to connect with researchers! If you missed the series on OA, it is available to watch here on our website. You can find it along with other guides and videos showcasing the key points researchers need to know about Open Access. We truly believe that having resources like this are essential for supporting researchers with navigating open access requirements.

This webinar looked into the basics of Open Access – because what exactly is Open Access, and what does it mean for the publishing journey?
During this session, we dug into the different OA and journal types, talked about national OA strategies, and helped you locate the right resources that can assist you on your OA publishing journey.
The Center for Open Science (COS) hosts several pre-print servers for different research domains. One of them is PsyArXiv, which covers the psychological sciences, and has well over 300,000 downloads per month.Through an integration with ChronosHub, authors can submit their pre-print hosted on PsyArXiv directly into a journal from the American Psychology Association (APA).
During the submission process, all the metadata from the pre-print is pre-populated for the authors, thereby making the transition from pre-print to article submission very easy for the author.
