Open access sources are digital, free, and available online. Scholars may publish books directly with open access publishers, or they may add books that they publish with other academic presses to open access repositories. Likewise, scholars can publish in open access journals, or they can make their articles published in subscription-based journals open access by depositing them in an open access repository. In each of these cases, the scholarly articles and books are peer reviewed.
