"Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free to readers, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What makes it possible is the Internet and the consent of the author or copyright-holder" (Peter Suber). There are two ways to make research open access:

1) publishing in an open access journal or

2) depositing a previously published article in an open access repository.
