%A John Harnad %J Physics World %T Clarifying Open Access: its implications for the research community (Letter) %X A critique of the CERN proposal to convert particle physics journals from the user-institution-pays subscription model to an author-institution-pays model for the sake of Open Access (OA). OA can be achieved via author-institution self-archiving ("Green OA"); it does not require converting journals to OA publishing ("Gold OA"), which is likely to cost some researchers more at this time. %N 3 %K open access, Green OA, Gold OA, publishing models, publishing reform, self-archiving, research funding %V 29 %D 2007 %L cogprints5448
