" OSA's ""Copyright Transfer and Open Access Publishing Agreement"" (OAPA) is the default option for most authors when publishing in one of our fully open access journals or when opting for open access in our hybrid journals. All articles published under our OAPA are freely accessible, while copyright is transferred to OSA. Authors may post the published version of their article to their personal website, institutional repository, or a repository required by their funding agency. Authors and readers may use, reuse, and build upon the article, or use it for text or data mining, as long as the purpose is non-commercial and appropriate attribution is maintained. Creative Commons Licensing OSA is aware that some authors, as a condition of their funding, must publish their work under a Creative Commons license. We therefore offer a CC BY license for authors who indicate that their work is funded by agencies that we have confirmed have this requirement. " Website Instructions for authors
