Open access is an extensive and free of charge source of research outputs, i.e. academic journal articles, conference papers, thesis, monographs, etc. It allows both publishing and accessing academic information.
Open access is a way for researchers’ work to be seen and referred to in further studies. Putting research outputs in public encourages academic discussions and thus increases the quality of research.
Users can freely read, download, copy, spread, and refer to the information found in Open Access archives. If you are a researcher or simply want to follow the research development in your area of interest, Open Access is the way to go.
