Open Access Publishing
Open Access Publishing represents a major breakthrough in publishing and has transformed the way scientific data is published and disseminated. It embodies the ever increasing demand of everyone concerned that research content, and indeed science should be open access and free- be it for the undeveloped countries and under developed countries; or developing countries or even developed countries. It is a known fact that with the economies of several countries in the doldrums, all the countries in the world are now facing budgetary constraints for journal and book purchase, be it for the individuals or for the libraries.
The end users are:
• Students and
• General public.
The advantage of the Open Access is that it is open, and accessible to anyone with a PC at no charge. Many scientists have assiduously used and canvassed for open access publishing as a forum for their work because it is of utmost importance for wider dissemination of information, and that it serves the best interest of the scientific community.
The Advantages of Open Access Publishing are:
• Quick publication time
• Copyright rests with the author/editor
• Maximizes the opportunity for publications to be read
• Wide dissemination; all interested can read, take printout and disseminate the manuscript (s)
• Extra access to papers
• Widest possible diffusion and opportunity for authors to be recognized for their contribution in their chosen field and beyond
• No cost to the reader, no budgetary constraints and no subscription needed
• Available immediately on acceptance
• Available worldwide
• Removes permission barriers- unrestricted use of all published material
• No barriers to information and democratization of information.
Article Processing Charges:
The Open Access makes it possible for knowledge to be distributed more efficiently, more widely and at a lower cost than ever before. However, there still costs that the Publishers have to cover, like that for copy editing, proof reading, digital presentation and preservation, promotion and preservation. As all articles are free for the end user and no income is generated through subscription or pay per view or through advertisement, these costs are defrayed through publication charges through the author/ author’s sponsors, funding agencies, institutions etc. So, like all Open Access Publishers, we pay an Article Processing Charge per article. Our article processing charges are one of the lowest compared to other international publishers and it is usually, U.S. $ 28/per page.
Hard copies can be ordered at cost. High quality reprints can also be ordered. Both costs include handling, packaging, registration and air-mailing. A nominal bank clearance charge applies.
For Indian authors, it would be Rs. 200/- per page.
