Depression is considered as mood state that goes beyond temporarily feeling weather it is sad or happiness. it is simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days. It is a life-long condition in which the time interval of wellness alternate with the occurrence of illness. It is a serious illness that majorly affects one's thought, feelings, behavior, mood and physical health. Major depression is also known as clinical depression. The availability of the effective treatment and better understanding lessen the depression to a certain extent level.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel road 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.
