Understanding Open Access Publishing
In order for a platform to qualify being called an Open Access Publishing house, they need to meet certain criteria. Some of the most important criteria that every Open Access Publisher needs to meet are: All participating authors need to grant open, and free access to their papers. This grant is irrevocable and is applicable for scholars from all nations irrespective of any excluding criteria. The grant must also allow for anyone to gain access to the content, use it for personal use, create a certain number of printed copies for own use, share it with anyone else, and display it for any purpose they deem fit. Anyone who is using this material is also entitled to change it, or use it to create derivative works of his own, as long as the original author is duly credited for his work. In addition to this, an open access publisher needs to ensure that all content archived on its platform is perpetually available, and unfettered access to it can never be denied
The publisher needs to ensure that an electronic copy of the paper, along with any related supplements is immediately shared on a reputed repository related to that field. This repository needs to be supported some kind of academic institution, or government agency.
Why is Open Access needed?
Open Access is a way to make information easier to acquire. For decades now, quality research papers have been hidden behind expensive paywalls and private journal publishers that often charge exorbitant sums to provide access to this material. As a scholar you may have often stumbled across the abstract of a paper that would have been perfect for your research, only to find that the complete paper is hosted on a reserved access service, and expensive subscription is needed in order to get it. This situation is especially dicey because the paper itself may not be that useful for you, and you only need access to a small information mentioned there, but you end up paying for all of it anyway. An Open Access Journal, on the other hand makes it far simpler for you to gain access to high quality articles and research papers, that too for absolutely free.
If there is one thing that we can say with complete confidence, it is that information gives way to newer and more comprehensive information. All the growth in medicine, physics, and other branches of science depends on easier access to all the information that exists already.
