"Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions." -- Peter Suber, http://legacy.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/overview.htm

  • For students this means being able to access online, scholarly literature without having to pay fees for a single article or pay tuition to afford access with a myRedlands username and password.
  • For alumni this means not losing access to online, scholarly literature once you've graduated.
  • For authors this means opting to remove barriers that inhibit scholarly communication, and wrestling with costs and uncertainties that come with using newer business models.
