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.
