“Open Access” (OA) means that scholarly publications are available without subscription paywall barriers, and usually licensed for reuse. See a good primer here

OhioLINK, Ohio’s academic library consortium, has negotiated deals with publishers that increase the number of journal titles available for faculty and students as well as offer open access publishing at no cost to authors.  Authors at most two-year and four-year non-profit colleges and universities in Ohio can increase the availability of their research without any Article Publication Charges (APCs).  For an overview of OhioLINK Open Access resources, please see the Open Access for Authors page.  For questions about journals and other resources available to you through your institution's library, contact your librarian.
