Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel ï¿½roadsï¿½ 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 ï¿½self-archivingï¿½ (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.
Histopathology can be defined as the microscopic examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen to study the manifestations of disease. In histopathology, the tissue is taken off from the body by surgery, autopsy or biopsy then it is fixed over the glass slide as a method of stabilization and stained with dyes followed by examination under the microscope. The fixation is done to prevent tissue decay. Different histopathological techniques are used to diagnose tissues of interest
