In the publishing sector, which spans across several centuries, open access mode of publishing is relatively new concept that enables free-of-cost and seamless accessibility to the peer-reviewed articles, research outcomes, systematic reviews and expert opinions either through periodic journals or books. With the advent of electronic media and advancements in communication technology, open access publishing has turned out to be a revolution in publication industry. The concept of open access is increasingly gaining momentum and awareness in both academic and non-academic sectors.
The International Open Access Week conceptualized by Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), which is now entering its tenth year since its inception, has become an exciting event in the academic world to increase the awareness of open access publishing model and to disseminate its benefits all across the world. This event is aimed at inspiring more people to join the open access movement and make this format a default system in the scholarly research milieu. This year the Open Access Week is going to be celebrated from 22-28 October 2018 with the theme of “Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge”. The theme has an open question to all the stake holders pertaining to the enormous possibilities of benefiting the society and scientific community through sharing our acquired scientific understanding without any barrier.
OMICS International has been an ardent follower of open access system since its inception. OMICS International publishes more than 700 open access journals covering wide spectrum of disciplines. The gaining popularity of OMICS international is evident from the fact that it’s readers/online visitors have increased from mere 10,000 in the year 2009 to 25 million in the year 2018. OMICS International has been supported by 50000+ Editorial board members who serve on voluntary basis to disseminate healthcare and scientific information.
OMICS International follows gold route of open access where the content is immediately accessible in the original copy-edited and typeset format on own platforms with unrestricted reuse provided the author or original source is cited. This enables greater level of integration among author contributions with larger reader engagement as well as faster and increased frequency of citation and utility. Scholarly research is invariably linked to funding sources. Funding bodies are emphasizing on free accessibility of the research outcomes of the grant holders. OMICS International complies with this vision of funding bodies. We constantly evaluate and revise our open access policy in order to facilitate and promote open access science. The initiatives taken by OMICS International in this regard have been a grand success and we would like to continue with the open access motto.
To promote the philosophy of Open Access, OMICS International is planning several activities for our Authors, Reviewers, Editors and Readers. On behalf of OMICS International, we would like to provide special benefits to the authors during this year’s Open Access week (22nd to 28th October 2018).
