Open Access

Open Access mandates around the world

In August 2022 the Biden administration mandated immediate open access to federally funded research after it is published, to be fully implemented by 2026.

To help choose a journal to publish in, it is worth reviewing the publisher’s policies regarding author rights for archiving in an institutional or subject repository.

SHERPA/ROMEO provides a searchable database of journals and publishers' policies on OA and self-archiving and can help find more information. For Australian journals and publishers OAKList offers similar information.
