The Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) defines 'open access' as right of users to 'read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles...or use them for any other lawful purpose' as mandatory for a journal to be included in the Directory.

Open Access seeks to return scholarly publishing to its original purpose: to spread knowledge and allow that knowledge to be built upon.  Price barriers should not prevent students (or anyone) from getting access to research they need.  Open Access, and the open availability and searchability of scholarly research that it entails, will have a significant positive impact on everything from education to the practice of medicine to the ability of entrepreneurs to innovate.

Open access journals are journals that use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. Explore the various Open Access Journals in Management and allied areas.
