Open access refers to the free online access of scholarly information on the internet. This can be achieved by depositing material (within copyright) into an institutional or subject repository, and/or publishing in an open access journal. Much of this scholarship is indexed by Google Scholar, enabling instant, international exposure to research which benefits readers and authors alike.
