Open access e-learning course now available in English

The Open Science Support Centre offers a number of educational activities and methodological materials, including online courses in the Moodle for further education system. One of the first courses, Open Access at CU - How to publish Open Access?, is now also available in English

At the end of this course, you will know how to answer the following questions: 

  • What is open access? 

  • What does it mean to "publish open access"? 

  • What are the benefits of open access publishing? 

  • What is the difference between the green and the gold route to open access? 

  • What specific steps does an author need to take to publish in open access? 

  • What are the typical features of so-called predatory journals and publishers and how to avoid them?

  • What does Charles University offer me as an author in the field of open publishing? 


All students and employees at Charles University can access the course in Moodle using their CAS login data. If you are having difficulties accessing the course, please contact the user support at moodle-help@ruk.cuni.cz

If you are interested in the course but you are not affiliated to Charles University, you can still access the course as a guest with a partially limited functionality (e.g., you will not be able to take the quizzes).
