Abstract
The extent to which scholarly literature can be openly accessed and freely downloaded on the Internet varies greatly depending on the discipline. This article assesses the current state of open access in the fields of business and management. Google was used to search for free versions of articles from a sample of articles published in early 2009 in a broad array of business and management journals. Free versions of 36% of the articles included in this study were identified, available from a wide variety of websites, including repositories, author profile pages, open access journals, and more.
