Open Access – The big picture, global need and impact
Public pays (through taxes) for biomedical research, scientists (from same public) work strenuously in their labs and publish research outcomes in peer-reviewed scientific journals with noble intent to disseminate knowledge, eradicate diseases and alleviate human sufferings. Ironically, same public (including scientists who have conducted the research and published articles) is unable to freely access more than half of the published scientific literature because it is hidden behind the paywall barriers.
Scientific publishing in Open Access peer-reviewed journals breaks this pay-to-read wall and liberates scientific literature for the public to read and use for advancement of science and healthcare. Participate with us in making Open Access a norm!
