Want to learn more about open access publishing? Now is the time. October 20–26 is Open Access Week (OAW), during which seminars will be given all over the world on the subject of open access publishing. What can you learn? I signed onto the Open Access Directory’s events list to find out.

Scores if not hundreds of universities offer a variety of free seminars during OAW. For example, at Ohio State University you can learn about the following:

  • • How to disseminate your work online
  • • Creating a website or blog to showcase your research
  • • Options for publishing digital content at the university

The University of Central Florida offers an all-day seminar with speakers from IEEE, Springer, Gale, and Taylor & Francis giving their perspective on open access publishing.

Open access journals can be a boon for the reader of research articles: they are freely available and the editorial standards are often comparable to subscription based journals.

Promoters of the term megajournal usually also tout quick response times, rapid publication, and open access to readers free of charge.

Megajournals: New Concept or Old Hat?
Really, megajournals are nothing new. Nature is a megajournal, so is Science, and the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).

Unlike private sector businesses, which may prefer to keep knowledge a trade secret, academic institutions have as their goal the free dissemination of all original research. This ideal is compromised by publishing houses which would rather keep published papers under their control, restricting access to readers who pay for subscription or charging authors for open access publication.

Open access publishing is the dream of every researcher: to publish papers that are instantly accessible to everyone and for free. There are now two versions of this dream.

The Gold Standard
In the “gold” model of open access the author pays the journal a fee for the privilege of open access. This fee may be as little as $150 or as steep as $3000. The high end is beyond the budget of many researchers or institutions for routine publishing.

Green is Growing
The “green” model allows an author to post a version of a paper in a repository accessible from the internet.
