Open Education Resources (OER)

Provides an introduction to open access and open education resources with emphasis on open textbooks.

Open Source Journals

Open access journals often charge a publication fee or article processing fee.  Be aware of this charge before choosing to publish in an open access journal.  For profit publishers also have open access journals; again, there is a fee.  Institutions sometimes pay the fee for researchers.

Unethical publishers may also publish open access journals.  For a list of these predatory (unethical) publishers, see the list maintained by Beall.  Jeffrey Beall is a tenured librarian at Auraria Library, University of Colorado, Denver.
