Gold Open Access ensures that the final version of an article is freely and permanently accessible for everyone on the publisher’s platform, immediately after publication. This type of Open Access usually requires paying APCs (article processing charges). Gold Open Access can be provided either via full Open Access journals or Hybrid journals – journals offering both, free traditional publishing and paid Open Access.
In some cases, Open Access publication fees are covered by national or TU/e Read & Publish agreements with publishers. Use the Journal Browser to find out if a journal of your choice is part of an agreement that will cover Open Access publishing costs.
Green Open Access, also known as self-archiving, is making publication freely available via an Open Access repository. After publication in a traditional (subscription based) way, a peer-reviewed version of the article is also placed in an Open Access institutional repository (open publication database).
Authors from TU/e are requested to register all academic publications and to upload the final author version in Pure. Data Management and Library will make a publication available in Pure via Green Open Access as soon as allowed by the publisher.
