Roads to Open Acccess

In general, there are two main roads to Open Access publishing:
First, the so-called Golden Road which is the primary publication of a scientific or scholarly work. Second, the so-called Green Road which can take the form of a secondary or parallel publication. Across academic disciplines it is also common practice to disseminate research results prepared for later publication on a so-called Preprint Server before peer review.
