To achieve the benefits of Open Access, authors may proceed with publishing in traditional ways but supplement this process with the deposit of their outputs to an Open Access repository (OAR). This is known as Green Open Access (OA).
Around the world, most policies with Open Access Mandates require Green OA, including the University of Tasmania Open Access Policy.
