Inspired by today's Open science panel @MCAA_CroChapter event, here's a short #GreenOA guide, useful for scholars w/limited funds.
Most Cro journals are funded by ministry & required to be diamond OA = free-to-read & free-to-publish, available at : 1/7
But, the authors who want (& need to= publish in international journals are often faced with the fact that the most of the prestigious ones are hybrid journals which means you need to pay for Gold OA if you want your article to be accessible. 2/7
This is very costly & Cro institutions don't have funds nor contracts with publishers as some other countries (e.g. Slovenia & Sage ), which would allow them to publish Gold OA free of charge. But there are other options that are under-utilized, most notably Green OA. 3/7
Green OA means that *accepted* manuscript (before copyedit) can be made publicly accessible via 1 or more channels: personal webpage, institutional webpage, academic social networks (e.g. Research Gate, disciplinary and/or institutional repository (e.g. CROSBI in Croatia). 4/7
You have to provide link to published vers. & there are a bunch of different rules about embargo, which are usually buried at publishers' webpages. Fortunately, Sherpa Romeo provides this information for most journals in a very clear way. 5/7
Also, Google Scholar recently introduced 'funding mandate' accessibility info for academic profiles, & it will link automatically manuscripts in repositories. Alternatively, authors can upload their (accepted) manuscripts directly via Google Drive. 6/7…
So, green OA is an affordable and an important way to make our work accessible.
