Fast-Forward on the Green Road to Open Access: The Case Against Mixing Up Green and Gold

Harnad, Stevan (2005) Fast-Forward on the Green Road to Open Access: The Case Against Mixing Up Green and Gold Ariadne, 43

Record type: Article

Abstract

This is a critique of Jean-Claude Guedon's "The 'Green' and 'Gold' Roads to Open Access: The Case for Mixing and Matching"(Serials Review 30(4) 2004). J-CG thinks that what needs to be self-archived is unpublished papers (preprints), and that peer review then somehow needs to be added, in order to make the preprints into validated publications. But what needs to be self-archived is peer-reviewed, published postprints. Those have already been validated. JC-G is mixing up Gold OA (OA journal publishing) and Green OA (OA self-archiving of non-OA journal articles).
