In recent years, Open Access (OA) publishing has experienced rapid growth, witnessing the emergence of numerous new publishers and journals. In this talk, I will explore the benefits, challenges, and potential pitfalls of OA publishing from the perspectives of both an active researcher and a research funder. I will briefly revisit the well-rehearsed arguments for OA and discuss some challenges and abuses, such as peer review quality or predatory practices. Finally, I will conclude with a discussion of best practices and alternative publishing models.
