How Open is It?

Produced collaboratively by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), the Public Library of Science (PLOS), and the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), “How Open is It?” is a guide that helps you decide how Open Access a journal is. The guide does this by splitting open access into its component parts ( i.e. reader rights, reuse rights, copyrights, etc.) and placing them on a spectrum from more to less open.
