Gold OA refers to the most common type of open access, where articles and content are immediately available through the journal's website.
Public Library of Science and BioMedCentral are examples of OA journals. The Directory of Open Access Journals can also provide a list of other medical journals that are OA.
Green OA refers to articles and content that are shared outside of publications, such as institutional or scholarly repositories.
The UNTHSC Scholarly Repository is an example of a Green OA.
Hybrids journals are those that still mainly follow traditional publishing processes and pay-for-access subscriptions, but also have certain articles that are open access.
JAMA and BMJ both offer hybrid options. Most of their articles are accessible through a subscription, but there are numerous other articles that people can access without having to pay or subscribe.
