Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel Â“roadsÂ” 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 Â“self-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 Journal of Information Technology and Software Engineering is an open-access journal. Hierarchical and complex control systems used for supervision, data collection, monitoring and visualization usually work in real time. The ability of reacting on current events and signals received from the environment is their main feature. A program controlling embedded system utilised in measuring devices is a perfect model of such system. This short paper draws attention to the readers one of the process of object-oriented analysis and design of measurement system. Under presented framework modelling is performed according to UML rules. Software creation process is based on GRAPPLE rules. Within these process most of time is sacrificed to analyse and design while succeeding coding is then easy and efficient, similarly to installation and system deployment. By investing up front in understanding the requirements and modelling the design, we ensure a finished product that is correct, robust, reliable and extensible.
