Open Access Spectrum Evaluation Tool

The Open Access Spectrum was developed by SPARC in collaboration with PLOS and OASPA. This tool displays the core components of openaccess across a spectrum indicating how closed or open a journal is based upon its policies on reader rights, reuse rights, copyrights, author posting rights, automatic posting, and machine readability. The How Open Is It? guide can be downloaded and shared with faculty and students who have questions about how to evaluate open access journals. The Open Access Spectrum Evaluation Tool can also be used to filter and locate journals based upon publisher policies on these key components.
