Open Access provides several advantages over traditional scholarly publication methods:
Open Access (OA) is the free, immediate online availability of research articles.
OA research articles unlike those in conventional subscription journals, are free at the point of use to anyone with internet access without any cost or the need for institutional login or passwords
We can help you deposit and manage your articles in Research@THEA, our open access repository, so that they are easy for other researchers to find, use, and cite.
Depositing publications in Research@THEA leads to direct access into RIAN – a research portal showcasing Irish research excellence and sharing it with the world.
For more information on Research@THEA see:
Use the SHERPA/RoMEO database of publisher copyright policies & self-archiving to find a summary of permissions that are normally given as part of each publisher's copyright transfer agreement.
Use it to find publishers or journals that permit deposit of a final version of a paper in a repository, such as PubMed or in an institutional repository, such as Research@THEA.
