Every day is Open Access Day

OA means free online access to refereed research.

OA can be provided by self-archiving in the author's institutional
repository all articles published in non-OA journals ("Green OA")
and/or by publishing in OA journals ("Gold OA").

Green OA self-archiving is being mandated by 56 universities and
research funders worldwide so far.

Green OA self-archiving needs to be mandated by all universities and
research funders worldwide.

The result will be universal OA (and Gold OA will follow soon after).

OA maximizes research access, uptake, usage, impact, productivity,
progress and benefits to humankind.

The best thing you can do for OA is to lobby for Green OA
self-archiving mandates.

"That is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

Every day is Open Access Day
