There are two types of Open Access publishing:
1 Making the material available by self-archiving – "Green" Open Access
You have already published an article in a peer reviewed journal, following the OsloMet Open Access policy by making a copy of the publication available in the OsloMet Science Archive ODA by uploading it to Cristin.
The version archived in ODA is usually your latest manuscript draft, following the peer-review but ahead of publication. Most publishing houses permit some kind of self-archiving.
The University Library discusses the rights of open publishing with the individual publisher.
2 Open Access publishing – ”Gold" Open Access
You publish your article directly in an open, peer-reviewed journal or book series.
How to publish gold Open Access

- Finish by depositing / uploading your article in Cristin.
