  1. The color of the symbol indicates the kind of open access. If it is orange (Full Open Access), the final version of the document is freely available under a license that allows redistribution and reuse. If it is green (Version of record available), the final version of the document can be accessed for free somewhere, sometimes at the publisher’s website. Finally, if it is grey (Postprint or arXiv available), only a postprint or arXiv version is available.
