Open Access (OA) is the designation used to describe published research content which is distributed online and free of cost. Many open access titles are also for sale in print form.
Public domain refers to content that is not copyrighted and may be used by anyone without the author's permission. Most public domain content was published before 1923.
An institutional repository (IR) is a digital collection owned and maintained by an institution (often a university or scholarly association). Content in institutional repositories is often copyrighted, but can still be read and cited. Content in institutional repositories is generally not in the public domain and should not be reproduced without permission from the author.
