Making a version of work (usually an AAM) available in an open access repository. These can be institutional such as the Cambridge Repository or subject based, such as arXiv, PubMed Central, RePEc or SSRN. Placing work in ResearchGate or Academia.edu is not considered to be green open access. Green Open Access can be considered to be ‘secondary Open Access’.
