Open Access (OA) describes the free, unrestricted access to and re-use of research articles. Recently, a new wave of interest, debate, and practice surrounding OA publishing has emerged. In this paper, we provide a simple overview of the trends in OA practice in the broad field of geochemistry. Characteristics of the approach such as whether or not an article processing charge (APC) exists, what embargo periods or restrictions on self-archiving’ policies are in place, and whether or not the… Expand

The growth of open access publishing in geochemistry
Abstract In this communication, we look at Open Access (OA) publishing practices in geochemistry. We examine a list of 56 journals and assess whether Article Processing Charges (APCs) and JournalExpand
On the Potential of Preprints in Geochemistry: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
TLDR
A range of discipline-specific or cross-domain platforms now exist, with exponential growth these last five years, and a strong community of early adopters is already beginning to experiment with such value-enhancing tools in many more disciplines than before. Expand

TLDR
The paper discusses how researchers in poor countries may be left behind by the Open Access initiative of publishing houses due to a lack of funding to cover publication fees and illustrates how the pressure to publish has accelerated the proliferation of predatory journals. Expand
