The traditional publishing model was based on subscriptions from readers and was heavily criticized for restricting access to important scientific information while generating large profits for publishers. Realizing the importance of unrestricted access to scientific information, many journals introduced an Free Journal policy, whereby all readers could gain free access to all journal content online with no restrictions. Open access is reaching the tipping point, with around 50% of scientific papers published which is now available for free.

Free Journals are peer reviewed and upon acceptance will be immediately and permanently available free for everyone to read and download. The peer-review process subjects scientific research papers to independent scrutiny by other qualified scientific experts (peers) before they are made public with equal transparency maintained between authors, reviewers and Editors. The goal of peer-review is to assess the quality of articles submitted for publication in a Scholarly Open Access Journals. Peer-reviewed articles provide a trusted form of scientific communication. Articles published by these Academic Journals are peer-reviewed and edited by the experts in the related areas for a good impact in the scholarly and academic society.
Submitted manuscripts under Free Journals will be assigned to one of the editors based on their expertise. If the paper is deemed to be within the scope of the Scientific Journal with regard to content and of a minimum quality an academic editor with expertise in the relevant area, usually one of our editorial boards, is then also assigned to the paper. The editor and editorial board member will promptly assess the manuscript and will decide if it is likely to meet the requirement of providing a major advance in a particular field and describing a sufficient body of work to support that claim; if so, it will be sent for peer review. The professional and academic editors then together make a decision based on the reviewers' comments. The decision might be Re-revise/Major Revision/Minor Revision/Accept/Reject.
Impact Factor for Free Journal is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to articles published in journals. Journal Impact factors are calculated in yearly/half- yearly/ Quarterly/Monthly for those journals that are indexed in Journal Reference Reports (JRR). Journal Impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations the papers published in a journal receives in a given year by the total number of articles published in the two previous years. Journal impact factors are published each year in the Journal Citation Reports — produced by ISI.
