Benefits of Open Access Research
Accelerated discovery : With open access, researchers can read and build on the findings of others without restriction.
Improved education : Open Access means that teachers and their students have access to the latest research findings throughout the world.
For researchers, open access brings increased visibility, usage and impact for their work. A number of studies have now been carried out on the effect of open access on citations to articles, showing the increased citation impact that open access can bring. Open access repositories also provide an excellent means for researchers to boost their online presence and raise their profile.
Major Attributes of Socrates:
1: Free for all (Open Access) : :There is No Article Access Restrictions .Registration and log in is not required to view open access contents.The core idea of Socrates On-line version (open access) is the basis of its key advantage—articles are freely available for anyone who wishes to read them. For readers and libraries, the benefits of not having to pay for an individual article or journal subscription are obvious. And for those that believe that publically funded research should be freely available to all, mandates to make the outcomes of these funding programs free to the public are now becoming the norm.
2: Zero Publishing fee : Publishing in the journal is free of cost. We do not charge any publication charges from the authors if their paper is Non-sponsored.There is No article processing charges (APCs).
3.Increased readership: For authors, publishing open access rather than behind a paywall can help open up their research to a wider audience. In an era where the number of articles being published is skyrocketing, open access can help an article to be more discoverable online. And ultimately, an increased number of readers can convert into an increased number of citations for the author.
4: Strict quality control : While not a problem for reputable publishers, some argue that open access models incentivize journals to publish more articles. Journals have to cover their costs and when a large portion of their revenue comes from publication fees, they may be encouraged to publish more articles, with a negative impact on overall quality. This debate was recently reignited with the acceptance of a spoof article by a Science editor in many open access journals. To overcome this problem we have implemented a high level of quality control in which articles are selected on the basis of their quality.
5: Access for researchers in developing countries : The lack of access to subscription-based journals is a commonly cited problem for researchers in low-income countries. Open access can help provide scientists in such countries with the opportunity to participate in the international research community, with some open access journals even offering discounted or waived publication fees for papers from low-income countries.
