Unit 1 of this Module gives a general overview of open access movement, its genesis, and various actors. It also relates to two other interlinked public movements, namely, open source software (OSS) movement and open educational resources (OER).

Unit 2 titled “Routes to Open Access” gives overview and definitional approaches two different routes of OA – the Green and Gold routes. It also discusses a hybrid model, where toll-access e-journals are publishing open access articles. Here, subscription-based contents and open access contents coexist in a single platform.

Unit 3 titled “Networks and Organizations Promoting Open Access” elaborates roles of different regional and international networks and organizations in promoting OA. Various OA actors and advocates are found to harmonize global OA movement through formal networks and coalitions. These networks and organizations also strengthen capacity and capability of local institutions and help them in social capital formation.

Unit 4 titled “Study of OA Mandates and Policies” elaborates different institutional and funders’ OA mandates. Some of these mandates have become model OA policies for similar institutions and organizations.

Unit 5 titled “Issues and Challenges of Open Access” discusses concerns, issues and challenges related to OA scholarly literature. No doubt, there is apprehension due to arrival of predatory OA journals in OA domain, with vested profiteering interest. But there are checks and balances to avoid such predatory journals. Due to OA advocacy and awareness raising efforts, OA knowledge producers have improved researchers’ perceptions in quality and recognition of OA literature. This Unit briefly discusses different metrics and performance indicators available for assessing OA scholarly literature.
