How Open is it? Open Access Toolkit #openaccess #OA

"This guide will help you move beyond the seemingly
simple question, “Is this journal open access?” and toward
a more productive alternative, “How open is it?”
Use it to:
• Understand the components that define Open Access
• Learn what makes a journal more open vs. less open
• Make informed decisions about where to publish

K. Thomas Pickard:

"Traditionally, research papers undergo peer review before publication. Two trends, open access and social media, are changing the peer review process.

E-patients must be aware that traditional peer review applies different criteria and methods than review through social media outlets. Although still developing, these review processes may affect the evaluation of research quality."
