What is open access publishing?
The open access movement arose because of the rising costs of print publication at the beginning of the 21st century and also because new opportunities became available through web-based publishing of online journals. This led to the rise of open access publishing, which now accounts for about 16% of the articles published each year. There are different types of open access models like green OA, gold OA, hybrid OA, etc. You can check out our detailed infographics on open access here.
