There has been an increasing trend towards open access publishing over the past 20 years, with many academic and not-for-profit research funders increasingly requiring the publications they fund to be published open access. However, the definition of open access and of different types of open access options is confusing and often poorly understood. There is also a lack of guidance on open access publishing, particularly for commercial research funders.
To address these issues, Open Pharma has developed a set of educational slides on open access, which are now available in the resources section of the Open Pharma website and to download here.
