The ‘green’ route to Open Access is via self-archiving of your author accepted manuscript in a repository such as the SHU institutional repository, SHURA, alongside publication in a subscription journal.
The ‘gold’ route to Open Access involves making the final version of record Open Access via the publisher’s website. This usually involves paying a fee.
The Library's web pages about Open Access provide more information about how to make your work Open Access, support with Open Access charges and about rights retention.
