How can publishing open access benefit you?
When you publish your article gold open access, it is made freely available online, allowing anyone anywhere, to read your research. This means you can benefit from:

  • Increased visibility: No barriers to readership means researchers worldwide can read and cite your research.
  • Greater impact: Your research will be accessible to policymakers, practitioners and professionals in your field. Your open access article could be used to inform and develop public policy, be read by the general public, or be picked up by the media.
  • More freedom: Publishing under a CC-BY license means you can share your research across your networks, including social media.
  • Improved discoverability: Many of our journals are indexed in internationally-recognized citation and abstract databases, including the Journal Citation Report (JCR), Scopus, and PubMed, increasing the likelihood of your work being found and read by your colleagues.
  • Robust peer review: All accepted papers will undergo a thorough and robust peer review process, where each manuscript is objectively and constructively evaluated on its scholarly merit and integrity.
