What is Open Access?

Open Access Resources are research materials have been made available to the general public, free of charge: data and datasets, books and articles, including scholarly research articles.  This is not the same thing as public domain works, or those items that have fallen out of copyright protection; open access authors have chosen to share freely, so anyone can use the works legally without permission or fees.  Isn't that nice of them?
