Open Access refers to the free and unrestricted online availability and access to scientific research. Ever since the launch of the internet, the accessibility of data has become easier than ever before. Carrying out the same philosophy, the open access publishing model provides the wide availability of scientific content to everyone allowing academicians to maximize the impact of their research.
Publishing Open Access is extremely beneficial to Authors, Readers and even Funding Organizations as it offers a greater impact on research. It ensures that contents are available for unlimited and unrestricted access to students, teachers, and researchers across the globe. This is extremely useful for authors who have spent years working on discovering new technologies and methodologies to be able to share it with the entire world.
Open Access is very valuable as it accelerates the pace of innovation allowing researchers to build on existing research and opens the door for wider collaborations and conversations. The same applies to educational institutes by using the most up-to-date information and encouraging businesses to implement pioneering research into the latest technologies.
