  1. Hello,You ask if we are in the age of open access, or just on the verge?
    I know that the age of open access is raising every day.
    OA is free for all to read, and to use (or reuse) to various extents.
    In OA you have free access to material (mainly scholarly publications) via the Internet.
    One of the great benefits to open access is that libraries in smaller institutions or in economically disadvantaged areas around the world can have greater access to these scholarly resources.
    Open access helps to ensure long-term access to scholarly articles.
    Unlike articles that are licensed in traditional article databases, libraries and others can create local copies and repositories of these resources.
    The main reason that authors make their articles openly accessible is to maximize their research impact.
