ARTICLE ASSOCIATED DICTIONARY (Only Publisher in the World with this feature)
Qualiten Press believes scientific content and knowledge should reach to every section of the society. However, most of scientific and medical literature is published in field-specific technical language, which is hard to understand by members of public from unrelated fields. Thus, we publish article-associated dictionary with each article that helps all kinds of readers in understanding the scientific content and have better reading experience.
We are proud to be the only publisher in the world with article-associated dictionary feature. This feature allows easier understanding of the scientific article for people who do not have specialization in the respective field. Better understanding would also enhance the opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations and readers can read through articles of varying field to get the relevant information.
Qualiten believes in accessibility of scientific content to everyone. Therefore, Qualiten has not only followed open access model for easier access but also included various accessibility options for people with disabilities who may face trouble accessing the published content. Qualiten Press follows Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) published by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We also make certain that our content throughout the website including articles, news, announcements, etc. have same features which allow easier accessibilityy.
Qualiten Press has added additional features to smoothen the user experience for people facing visual impairments. Many people with physical and cognitive disabilities also face problems in using websites with high contrast ratio and flashing lights. We ensure not to use flash and we add article reader to every article that we publish. We also encourage our collaborators to submit content by keeping the WCAG in mind.
