Many high quality journals offer an open access option.

However, there are a number of publications which actively contact researchers offering to publish their articles and you should assess the quality of these publications carefully. If in doubt, ask one of your peers, or get advice from the Research Office.

There is also a list of possibly predatory Open Access journals - Beall's List - along with criteria for assessing publications at http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/
