What is Open Access?

Open Access


A growing number of countries require Open Access to the results of publicly-funded research. After surveying AES authors it was found that a majority were interested in having the option of publishing their work in Open Access (OA). Authors who choose this option will receive greater visibility and ease of access to their AES publications. The AES has therefore introduced an OA policy.

If an AES paper has been made OA it will have the OA logo next to it and will be freely downloadable from the AES E-Library by anyone, even if they are not an AES member or E-Library subscriber.
