Open Access stands for a way of publishing, where the researcher gives free online access to his/her publications. Since 2006, Lund University has a publishing policy in which the board of Lund University recommends researchers to, if possible, give free access to their research publications. A growing number of research funders demand open access to publications that are a result of their funding.
