Open access journals tend to act by accelerating scientific discovery by providing free and unrestricted access of scientific knowledge. An essential role of Open Access is the long-term preservation of peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles and research data. Open Access can be defined as an instrument ultimately used for public welfare to stimulate the growth of global science. Various tissue chips have been identified that although are small in comparison to the whole organ/tissue, are known to perform an entire organ function once implanted. These tissue chips are designed to be effective in every sense thereby gaining maximum effectiveness in a diseased individual. One such example is Lung on a Chip device that mimics the organ.
