Remedies are nothing but the precautions or prevention methods which have taken to stop something bad from happening or arising. Ancient remedies are the methods directed to prevent illness and promotes health condition of diseased individual. All the ancient remedies are very useful prevention methods with which we can treat many infectious diseases. Ancient remedies are playing vital role in the treatment of many diseases by eliminating causative agents or by gaining more resistance towards particular disease. Vaccination and immunization methods can also be treated as ancient remedies. Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel roads towards open access: Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant). The alternative for a researcher is self-archiving (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals. Open Access raises practical and policy questions for scholars, publishers, funders, and policymakers alike, including what the return on investment is when paying an article processing fee to publish in an Open Access articles, or whether investments into institutional repositories should be made and whether self-archiving should be made mandatory, as contemplated by some funders.
