Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel âroadsâ 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 âself-archivingâ (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.
The word gestation means pregnancy from where the term gestational diabetes has arisen. This is one of the types of diabetes that is found to occur in the case of pregnancy. By causing high blood sugar level, this can affect the mother as well as her baby. However gestational diabetes is curable and with the maintenance of proper diet, healthy life style and right medication this can be stopped to precede any ahead. Feeling thirstier, passing excess of urine, tiredness, dry mouth, blurred vision are few of the symptoms. Since this type tends to affect two lives simultaneously, the diabetic mother should take a good care of her to prevent it in all possible ways. Controlling the increased BMI is also suggested in these cases. According to few studies, Type 2 diabetes is often likely to occur after gestational diabetes. Keeping a simple control over the day to day activity can keep away diabetes.
