Q: How can I get access to open-access scholarly literature and can I quote them in my article?
Thank you for your question. Open access (OA) refers to freely available, digital, online information. As OA scholarly literature is free of charge, you can view such literature on relevant platforms that host OA scholarly literature. R Discovery is an AI-powered mobile app that allows you to access the scholarly literature including a host of OA research.
To answer your second question, OA research, like any other research, can be quoted in your article; however, you need to appropriately cite the article. Citing will allow you as the author to acknowledge the contribution of other writers and researchers in your current work.
We hope this helped. Click on any of the articles below for more information on OA publishing:
