What are “gold” and “green” open access? These are two principal models
that describe when an article becomes available to the public at no charge.
In gold open access, a research article is available free to the public
immediately upon publication. *In green open access, an article becomes
available free to the public after a designated period of time, usually
between six and 24 months.* Each model is funded differently.
