OA Archiving (Green OA)
OA Archiving (i.e. Green OA) is also known as self-archiving. It is the practice of depositing a version of your manuscript into a repository to make it openly accessible. In contrast to Gold OA, the copyright for Green OA articles typically remains with the publisher, and there are specific terms and conditions that determine how and when the article may be made openly accessible in the repository. Green OA is inexpensive; following an embargo period, your article will be fully accessible, for no extra charge.
