Journals: Open Access

Open Access Methods: Green & Gold

The two most common methods for open access publishing of research are labeled Green OA and Gold OA. Green OA usually refers to depositing content into an institutional repository and Gold OA refers to peer-reviewed content being made freely available upon publication.

Green OA permits authors to deposit a version of their article in a repository and may also refer to peer-reviewed, published articles that have an embargo period. ScholarSpace is an open-access, digital institutional repository for the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa community. ScholarSpace stores the intellectual works and unique collections of the UH at Mānoa academic community and also provides a permanent web location for those accessing these resources.

Gold OA provides OA to peer-reviewed research without delay, and usually refers to the published article (regardless of the journal’s business model). A growing number of universities maintain funds to pay publication fees on behalf of faculty who choose to publish in fee-based OA journals. Some funders of research (such as the Wellcome Trust and NIH) and a growing number of countries require OA publication.
