What is Open Access?

Open access is free, unrestricted online access to scholarly articles. What it means to academia and research is that cost and access restrictions are removed from the equation, allowing free access to peer-reviewed, scholarly works, books, and just about any other electronic print material with the designation.

Open Access @ SBU

On February 6, 2017, University Senate adopted an Open Access Policy.  Visit Open Access @ SBU to see the SBU Open Access Policy, deposit your work, request a waiver and more!


Open Access works fall under two main publishing categories:


Green Open Access
Free online access to peer-reviewed materials provided by the author (self archived, or published in an institutional repository).


Gold Open Access
Free online access provided by the journal itself, whether the journal is subscription-based, APC (article processing charge)-based, or subsidized. Open access journals can be searchable within a digital publisher’s collection. For example, EBSCO allows the user to limit searching to open access journals.
