Open Access Publication- Emerging Opportunity For Researchers

Open access refers to a set of principles and a set of procedures for making research findings available online without charge or other impediments. By using an open license for copyright, obstacles to copying or reuse are lowered or erased when open access is rigorously specified or libre open access. The open-access movement is primarily concerned with peer-reviewed scholarly material. This has traditionally been limited to print-based literary periodicals. Unlike traditional (non-open access) journals, which cover publication expenses through subscriptions, site licensing, or pay-per-view charges, open-access journals have financing methods that do not force readers to pay to see the journal's information or rely on public support. Peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles, conference proceedings, theses, book chapters, autobiographies, research reports, and pictures are all examples of open access research output.

Why Open Access?

Open access removes financial, legal, and technical barriers between the researcher and the beneficiaries through a quick and transparent publication process. It has increased the visibility of research manifold since establishing open access principles in Berlin Declaration held in 2003. Open access publishing provides different routes to scholars and researchers for publishing their research. The most popular and emerging route is the golden route for publication in full open access and hybrid journals. Most journals have already adopted or committed to adopting the open-access model.

The success of open access is evident because many prominent journals following the standard subscription model are now "hybrid" journals. This success of open access publication has changed the landscape of the whole research publication industry. A study of open access growth in geochemistry reports that 40% of the articles published during 2018-19 were open access. Due to the rapid publication process of open access, the duration of publication has become shorter, providing an opportunity to publish more research.

Benefits Of Open Access

The visibility and impact of research are more with open access than traditional subscription access publication because the key of reading to your study is increased. Some reports strengthen this argument and state that articles published in open access journals showed higher full-text download, PDF download, and unique visitors compared to the articles published in journals with the standard subscription model. More than subscription journals, the articles posted during 2020 in open access journals were cited 12%.

More readers, more possible collaborators, greater citations for their work, and eventually more recognition for them and their university are all benefits of open access publishing. Open Access indicates that everyone will have better access to research as a result of the initiative.

Conclusion

To sum up, the open access publication model provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to increase the access of potential readers to their research. This will translate into increased visibility of their research. Higher visibility will accelerate citations. So, researchers should channelise their publication process towards the emerging opportunity of open access. More readers, more possible collaborators, greater citations for their work, and eventually more recognition for them and their university are all benefits of open access publishing. Open Access indicates that everyone will have better access to research as a result of the initiative.
