Instructions for publishing in UTUPub:

Publishing Openly

Open Access publishing means that the publication is available online free of charge. Different forms of open access publishing are:

  • publishing in an open access journal (Golden OA, the publisher provides the free access, the author retains copyright)
  • paying for opening your article in a traditional subscription based journal (Hybrid OA)
  • parallel publishing in an open publication archive, e.g. in university's own archive (requires permit from the publisher) (Green OA)
  • parallel publishing on a web page (self-archiving, requires permit)
  • publishing openly after an embargo (= publishing delay) (Delayed OA)

When you use articles published via Green OA, please note that the articles are not necessarily exactly the same as in the published version (e.g. the page numbers might be different).
