Open access is a publishing model that allows readers to access content without restrictions or fees. That means users are permitted to read, download, print, distribute, and share published materials freely as long as they comply with the requirements of the Creative Common Attribution License.
As opposed to a traditional subscription-based model, open access is built on the concepts of inclusivity and unrestricted access to knowledge. Our authors derive numerous benefits from this model, including a significantly wider distribution of their work and faster publishing process.
Why Publish Open Access
- Maximize readership potential
Subscription-based journals face readership limitations due to the fee system, which makes it inaccessible to a large portion of the target group. Open access removes that obstacle and allows anyone in the world to read your work.
- Increase funding opportunities
Open access drastically increases the exposure of your work, which, in turn, increases your visibility as an author and expert, improving your chances of securing funding for your next research project.
- Facilitate real-life changes
Academic research should not exist in a vacuum. It should provide the foundation for real-life applications, be a guide for policy makers, serve as a trusted source for community members, and inspire fellow members of the academia. Open access helps your work make a real-life impact.
- Get your paper published faster
Open access is a more agile and speedy method of delivery. Its wide accessibility requires publication of timely materials, which is why the process is significantly faster from start to finish.
