Open Access at UWinnipeg

Open Access (OA) literature is literature that is freely available online in perpetuity, free of most copyright and licensing restrictions, and published with the consent of the author or copyright-holder.  Readers do not require a subscription or any other form of payment, either personally or through their university or library, to access the content.  They may download, copy, and redistribute an Open Access publication, so long as it is attributed to the author.

While Open Access archives may contain unreformed preprints, scholarly open access publications in their final form typically adhere to the same standards, including peer review, as other scholarly literature.
