  5. There are currently two complementary strategies to achieve open access to scholarly literature: The green route to open access refers to depositing research output (e.g. peer-reviewed journal articles) in institutional or subject repositories (access can sometimes be delayed due to publisher's embargo period). The repositories do not carry out the peer review, but make research output freely and openly available and increase visibility. The gold route is for an author to publish in an open access journal. Open access journals use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access (subscription or access fees) and do no longer invoke copyright to restrict access to and use of the material they publish. Instead they use copyright and other tools to ensure permanent open access to all the articles they publish. Publication costs are usually carried by institutions or funding agencies.
