Our Publishing Models
Open-access journals are scholarly journals that are available online to the reader "without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself."
Hybrid Open Access
Subscription journals in which some of the articles are open access. It is mixed revenue model of subscription charges and pay-to publish options. Authors pay a subscription-based journal a publication fee to make their individual article open access immediately upon its release.
Why Open Access?
The Internet provides a new opportunity to bring information to a wider audience at virtually no marginal cost, and allow them to use it in new, innovative ways. This has resulted in a call for a new framework to allow research results to be more easily accessed and used—a call for Open Access.
