What is Open Access?

Peter Suber's A Very Brief Introduction to Open Access is a good starting point for investigating open access and open access publishing. For the sake of this blog, open access refers to the freely available full text content of scholarly ophthalmology, dermatology and cancer-related research articles found in open access journals, archives and databases. The gold road category of open access refers to non-embargoed content, or content which is immediately freely available at the time of publication (current journal issues). Embargoed content is usually freely available after a time delay of 1-12 months.
