Questions related to Open Access
"ResearchGate and MDPI Partner to Boost the Visibility of Open Access Content through" https://www.mdpi.com/about/announcements/7051
What kind of visibility are we talking about here?
I may not be a sheep, but going to bed with a known preditor does not help one to be in the right spotlight.
The Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI) has been the subject of debate within the scholarly community for a number of reasons. While it publishes a large number of journals across a range of disciplines, there has been criticism of its peer review process, quality control and potential issues with predatory publishing practices.
I am currently working on data about publications in open access journals.
Most of us have already experienced the answer from an editor about one of his.her submissions, declining it for the intended "major" journal but offering to consider it for the alternative open access journal from the same organisation.
Have anyone already had the chance to follow the opposite pathway? Meaning to have submitted an article to an open access journal from a scientific society and recieving a proposition to be considered for the major journal of the same organisation ?
Thank you for taking the time to share you experience,
A New Frontiers Journal is to be launched soon: Frontiers in Earth Observation and Land Monitoring (Cf attached Author Guide)
Frontiers in Earth Observation and Land Monitoring is a multidisciplinary open-access journal that presents major advances in the monitoring and understanding of key land surface processes and in the optimal use of different observation systems dedicated to land monitoring.
We are working towards launching new journals with a foundation of quality content to generate as much interest as possible from the community. To do this, we appoint only the best researchers in their areas of expertise and commission at least 10 articles before launch, which we'll make available through an early-access page on our website.
We do not want our fees to be a barrier to publishing quality research, therefore we have several author support services available. To find out more, contact us at email@example.com
Dear ResearchGate Community,
I am going to publish an open-access app for wearable and video synchronization in the app store, and I was wondering if any of you had experience on where to publish a accompanying short technical report on the app? I would also like to publish additional (optional) post-processing scripts together with the technical report.
In my opinion, publishing the technical report/letter (probably 2-page long) in an open-access online journal would help to spread the word about the app and make more researchers aware of this technique.
Many thanks in advance,
Recently one of my Journal paper has been accepted in an Open Access renowned SCIE Journal of Mechanical Engineering. The paper was initially reviewed in a high impact factor subscription type journal and had transferred to this Open Access Journal to which I had granted permission. Now I am in search of some funding who will bear 3000 USD (approx) as it is impossible for me to bear this amount.
What are the steps to obtain funding in an OPEN ACCESS SCIE Journal Paper (Accepted) of Mechanical Engineering?
Please suggest Journal with Open access without publication fee to publish review paper on plasma technology in food industry?
Most journals considered predatory are not really predatory. I have personally sent articles to check how they operate. They did plagiarism test and also reviewed the papers. Another aspect is that, they are fast and cheaper. They dysmystify the research publishing process. However, older publishers and their editors will not accept this truth because it represents a threat to their monopoly. They came up with all kinds of databases spreading scare among scholars not to publish or review for the new open access. The irony is that, the same people who accused the new publishers of not doing peer review are also telling academics not to act as editors or reviewers for such journals. Their aim is to kill competition and perpetuate monopoly. They conveniently forget the antitrust law, for those based here in USA. Institutions should award credit to those who work for open access journals as editors not minding whether they are indexed in one particular platform or not. Institutions should also take the issue of peer review seriously by awarding points for peer reviewing. If academics and professionals get fully involved in open access publishing, high quality knowledge will be available on the go, time for publishing will reduce and cost of publishing an article will be pushed down by competition. At the moment the old publishers who charge over 2000 dollars for their open access journals are the real predators. People living in Nigeria my country for example, have attained very high level of information technology such that many are on the internet 24/7. So why should a Nigerian scholar pay three times his monthly salary to get published when there are international publishers based on the country charging around 100 dollars. Is it not the same people who write and publish in the so called whitelisted journals that publish there? What is needed in Nigeria and India which already have the technology for publishing science digitally is for academics to get involved in the editorial process. This will make them know those publishers that are abiding by ethics and the headache of having to wait for six months for editorial decision only for your paper to be rejected will be solved. Also, before patronizing a publisher online check the age of the website. If it has existed for five years and its articles are clearly accessible without adverts and technical quits, then you have a guarantee that it's a journal that will not short down within a short period of time. Universities should help their research get visible globally online by acknowledging all journals being covered by Google Scholar and whose articles can be found on researchgate.net
Acquiring research skills through alternative methods involves seeking non-traditional avenues to develop the ability to conduct effective research. This may include:
- Online Courses: Enrol in online courses and tutorials offered by universities, platforms like Coursera, edX, or Khan Academy, or through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to learn about research methodologies, data analysis, and literature review.
- Self-Study: Engaging in independent study by reading textbooks, academic journals, and research guides to learn about research techniques, data collection, and analysis.
- Mentorship: Seeking guidance from experienced researchers or academics who can provide mentorship and hands-on training in research methods.
- Workshops and Seminars: Participating in workshops, seminars, and webinars on research-related topics to acquire practical skills and stay updated on the latest research trends.
- Collaborative Projects: Joining research projects or collaborative teams where you can learn from others, contribute to research efforts, and gain practical experience.
- Open Access Resources: Utilizing open-access resources, such as online research tools, datasets, and software, to practice and refine research skills.
- Blogs and Forums: Engaging with online research communities, forums, and blogs to exchange ideas, seek advice, and learn from experienced researchers.
- Library Resources: Accessing research materials and resources available in libraries, both physical and digital, to enhance research knowledge.
- Citizen Science: Participating in citizen science projects that allow individuals to contribute to research efforts while learning research techniques.
- Peer Learning: Collaborating with peers, sharing knowledge, and engaging in group research activities to collectively develop research skills.
These alternative methods offer diverse pathways to acquire research skills outside of traditional academic settings and can be tailored to an individual's needs and interests. If you have more answers, add them to these lists.
I am preparing a research article on public health and health promotion for a BMC Public Health journal which is open access. My university is not a member of the Springer Nature membership for APC fee waiver. This means that I would have to pay the APC fee myself. This is not fair.
Can anyone provide some support or advice on what I should do. Previous publications have been within hybrid journals, which are not open access and I was happy to take the embargo period.
What subscription only or hybrid journals on public health accept embargo?
I have an article that aligns perfectly with the theme of a special issue in an open-access journal. Regrettably, I currently lack the necessary resources to complete it. Consequently, the article has remained unfinished and unsubmitted to the journal since 2022. I am actively seeking potential collaborators who have expertise in the area of our article and are willing to contribute to the manuscript's revision. Additionally, if possible, collaborators who can share in the publication fees. My primary goal is to find a knowledgeable collaborator who can enhance the quality of our work. Your guidance and suggestions are highly appreciated.

Years ago, to know the work of other researchers we had only two ways: attending conferences and reading the publications (hard copy at that time) on the renowned journals.
At present, why we still consider the process of publication? A lot of predatory journals, many open access journal accept papers in so few days that a normal peer review process is debatable.
A couple of reviewers are really better than what any researcher can comment (with positive or negative meaning) if you download on RG or LinkedIn?
Is it still worth for some specific reasons or just for the academic goal "Publish or Perish"?
International Journal of Physics Research and Applications (IJPRA) is an open access journal of Heighten Science Publications Inc (HSPI). The journal publishes significant and new papers in the form of Research, review, perspective, opinion and other different prevalent types of articles pertaining to the research done in different branches of physics. The journal is rigorously peer-reviewed by an international Board of scholars.
Please suggest where we can find the subject-wise consolidated list of open access journals? Is it available on clarivate website or some other database publically open to all? If its personally available with some Researcher, please share it privately. I will be thankful.
Some days ago I received a review proposal from PLOS ONE...comments required within 10 days. Is this the standard time they expect for a proper review?
I've a lot of doubts...anyway..here below what I wrote when I decided to decline:
'Well, the paper totally fits in my research field but a review expected within 10 days is not affordable at all, included the fact that I would do it for free while you get money from authors. Your open access business model relies on free work of reviewers. I think it is not fair.'
What is your opinion?
I want to publish research paper in special issue by Elsevier, that journal offers authors two choices to publish research (Gold open access and Subscription).
I am not sure how and when to apply for the Green Open Access mode of publication. Is it after the journal accepts the manuscript for publication or otherwise? When I tried to opt for the same during the submission of my manuscript in a reputed open access journal, I did not find any option for the Green Open Access mode of publication. Kindly help.
today there is need for open access so that everyone can access all scientific data regardless of financial conditions. but this has given rise to other type of financial burden on the researcher or scholars who wish to publish their work. the open access fees charged by journals is such that unless you have got funding there is little to no chance individual scholar can afford these fees.
this has become a source of income for the journals. And now most journals r becoming gold open access. again these new terminologies are hard to keep track of.
there should be funding available for these individuals whose institute dont have funding or are unwilling to pay open access charges.
if any one knows of funders who can fund such individuals it will be great.
I am looking for a raster layer (available in open access) for UV light (UVB and/or UVA and/or UV index) on a global scale.
Thank you for your help,
Preprints can accelerate the widespread dissemination of ongoing research results, increase the attention of the academic community to the research, and contribute to increased citation of research results; enhance academic communication and improve the speed of sharing and exchange of knowledge in the scientific community; and open access, with free publication by authors and free access by readers.
However, preprints also have their limitations. Preprints are not peer-reviewed, which may lead to the dissemination of inaccurate results or even fallacious results, resulting in adverse effects such as misuse and misinterpretation of the sources of scientific information.
I would like to know whether there are some scientific journals in Linguistics that publish open access without fees (APC) on authors and/or institution. Some renowned journals in the field ask around 3000 USD for a full open access publication, I think it is a bit expensive..
The preprint of this is wrong It hen deleted it But not easy to load the new one with 14 authors
This should be the file and reference in the Research Gate pleas change
It is open access

I want to know the fastest publishing journals especially from submission to the notification of acceptance in the electrical engineering field in the certified Scopus list and not be fully open access.
I am grateful in advance.
I strongly feel that the publishers/journals that are now charging 1000 - 3000 USD for a single publication in the name of open access are making quite a lot of money. I strongly believe that reviewers who are devoting considerable time and sharing knowledge deserve a part of this cash. We should start a campaign that reviewers should be paid; even if it is a small sum of 10%. Also, the quality of the review process will improve, the senior seasoned scientists are often shying away from this role, and often the quality of reviews is low.
Peer-review isn't working well, and it needs an overhaul. In the time of artificial intelligence, blockchain, and remote work, it doesn't make sense to wait for months just to receive few lines rejecting an excellent manuscript or accepting a poor one!

Europe ponders ‘no pay’ open-access plan
quote : The Council of the European Union has recommended a ‘no pay’ academic-publishing model in which neither readers nor authors are billed for academic papers. Critics say that the plan could usher in a state-defined system that might stymie academic freedom and abolish an industry without considering who would pay for the alternative. Supporters, such as the German Research Federation, say the principles would lower the barriers to participation in academic discourse. “There’s a recognition that we need to move beyond the [article processing charge] APC,” says publishing consultant Rob Johnson. “The question is: just how is that done?”

Hi everyone! I got an invitation to submit a paper to the following SCI-E/SCOPUS MDPI journal (special issue):
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs) per accepted paper. However, the fees will be fully waived (as it is an invitation to contribute) if I can submit the paper by the end of June 2020.
If anyone have a collaboration idea, please send me a message.
What challenges might arise when implementing open access approaches in the supply chain, and how can they be addressed?
ResearchGate lists multiple open access publications with the message:
"Your recent article doesn’t have the full-text yet. Add the full-text of your recent life science work so that others can read and cite it."
The only option is offers is to upload a pdf. I can't find a way to add the open access link, which is how many prefer to manage their publication library these days. I don't have time to download all those open access pdfs and re-upload them to ResearchGate.
My questions are:
1. Why isn't ResearchGate including the open-access link when the pubs are first posted?
2. How do I add the open access links retrospectively?
I paid for the open access fee of my paper, and yet you block me from posting a Public text.

I have the pleasure and priviledge of having just been appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Fluids, published by MDPI.
It is an Open Access journal which has developed and gone from strength to strength under Mehrdad Massoudi, the outgoing EiC.
To quote the website for the journal, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/fluids ,
"Fluids (ISSN 2311-5521) is an open-access journal, which provides an advanced forum for studies on all aspects of fluid and its applications, including mathematical modeling, numerical simulation, and experiments. Our aim is to publish state-of-the-art papers, including original research papers, reviews, case reports, as well as technical notes and meeting reports. There is no restriction on the length of the papers."
The journal publishes regular papers and Topical Collections. It also publishes Special Issues which are typically dedicated to chosen topics (such as Fundamentals of CO2 Storage in Geological Formations) or else inspired by individuals (e.g. to honour a significant birthday).
We are calling for papers concerning mechanics of biomolecules, cells, tissues and organs for Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, which is an Open Access journal that has been indexed and abstracted by EI, Scopus, SCImago (SJR), etc. More :https://www.techscience.com/journal/mcb
I submitted a paper to a journal from Springer-Nature and accepted the Research Square service. But after the negative of the Springer journal, I tried many other journals that refuse to review my work because it is online in the Research Square. Just Open Access journals accept papers submitted to Research Square. I asked to then for the removal of my paper, but it was refused. Now I have two PhD students that worked hard and need to publish but I don't have funding to pay the APC, and Research Square refuses to withdraw my work. It is criminal the action of Research Square. It's my work, it is my data, it is my paper, they don't have the right to keep and hold my work. My paper it is not been published yet, it is not under consideration by Springer-Nature and it belongs to me and my students. Research Square is holding our work in a scheme to force us to publish in open access. Withdraw our work or remove it from your platform!
You are not the owner of the data and manuscript. I also have two students that depend on this publication.
You are exposing my work that has not been evaluated, you are preventing it from being evaluated by journals that are not open-access. You are harming two PhD students. You are not the owner of this data! I made a mistake in believing in Research Square, remove the manuscript that does not belong to you!
Here's the case , For papers accepted for publication in (JES or JSS, )authors choose whether to publish their articles as open access.(ie via standard subscription mode)
All articles accepted for publication in (ECS Advances or ECS Sensors Plus) are published open access. My question is " Should I pay for journal subscription for jes Or jss for opting golden access.. Or without journal basic subscription can i publish my paper in jss Or jes..
The question is intended to consider factors like:
- Their historical origin and factor, influencing on their development
- Their application since 2012.
- MOOCs classification
- Main detected problems
- Are they needed and feasible in your country? What is the current situation in your Institution?
I have just up loaded a new paper to Research gate
A review of the geometrical basis and the principles underlying the use and interpretation of the video head impulse test (vHIT) in clinical vestibular testing
but on the research gate page it appears as

Please remove the words OPEN ACCESS EDITED BY
What should regulations for the ethical and good practice use of ChatGPT-type technology in the context of the use of this technology in schools, colleges and universities contain?
One technology company in late 2022 launched in open access the possibility to use ChatGPT technology which is a kind of next-generation artificial intelligence enabling automated text generation based on a database of publications, texts, information, data, etc. taken from multiple websites in 2021. Arguably, other leading technology companies that operate primarily on and through the Internet are creating, developing similar technological solutions based on a specific generation of artificial intelligence and preparing for their implementation in specific applications. New applications for such Internet-accessible technological solutions based on a specific generation and successively improved artificial intelligence are emerging and will also continue to emerge in the years to come. The very availability of such technological solutions in open access on the Internet is a revolution of sorts, in fact it is the beginning of a new revolution in terms of the online information services offered to citizens and improved through the implementation of artificial intelligence. Accordingly, heated discussions are currently developing on the issue of compliant ethics and good practice in the use of ChatGPT-type technology in the context of the use of this technology in schools, colleges and universities. It is imperative that clearly defined ethics and good practices for the use of this technology in institutions of the education system, including schools, colleges and universities, be added to the rules and regulations of schools, colleges and universities.
In view of the above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of scientists and researchers:
What should the rules and regulations for the ethical and good practice use of ChatGPT-type technology contain in the context of the use of this technology in schools, colleges and universities?
What do you think about this topic?
What is your opinion on this subject?
I invite you all to discuss,
Thank you very much,
It is a fact that open access journals publishers (like MDPI) suggest a fast peer review process but for low income countries students (or students who's institutions does pay the APC charges), it is a big issue to cover the required charges.
Who want to publish in fast journals but facing this issue currently and what is the possible solution?
Kindly accept my warmest regards,

If anyone has a list, resource, or website that lists Scopus-indexed journals in the field of medicine and health with no publication charges, APCs (article processing charges), or fees required to submit and publish, let's share them with each other.
I want to know, Is it author's universal right to publish an pre-print of a paper in open-access repositories or it depends on various publishers policies.
I am asking in the context of publishing a book chapter in IGI publishing. I tried to look for their policies but I'm unable to clearly understand this perticular aspect.
Please provide your insights, if you know anything about this matter in the context of all publishers.
Hello there, we created this survey to investigate Mental Health issues and the access to services, if you may, please answer it :) link is in the google Form below
This research is on the field of Mental Health, conducted by Dr M. Mastrantonio (University of York, UK), Dr. R. Vivekanantharasa (Open University of Sri Lanka), and Dr. L. Martinez (Nova Southeastern University, USA). It is anonymous and in accordance with ERC principles. Final results will be available through Open Access and can be forwarded to each participant at the end of the research phase (March, 2023). We thank you in advance for your estimated contribution, and you may share it around if you like it!
The COVID-19 pandemic influenced research works heavily. Consequently, publishers are opening new journals, especially in health science. Nonetheless, most new journals are open-access and charge for publication.
Do you think all the journals will survive or control quality?
Is APC one of the preseason of opening new journals?
I have ready a manuscript for publication in Medicine, I would like to publish it in open access without cost Journal, can some one recommend me a journal?
Population Health/Digital Dashboards and optimizing the management of heart failure is the focus.
The cost of an article in an open-access journal is approximately 2000 and 3000 euros/USD (even more in some cases). However, such journals could hardly obtain such quality without the "free" peer review of many researchers. I am not satisfied with discounts or compensation. If these publishers (whose name is on everyone's head) charge such amounts and we, as reviewers, are part of the process of such quality, where is our money?
Do you agree? So, would you only review these journals if you were paid? I certainly would. Don't give away your work this way.
I have received an email regarding publishing in Medicon Open Access Journals. Upon checking two particular journals had an Impact Factor of 1.2 average. However, upon checking both Clarivate and SCIMago I couldn't find any record of such journals. Can anyone give me more information on these journals?
Medicon Engineering Themes (ISSN: 2834-7218); IF - 1.222
Medicon Medical Sciences; IF - 1.193

Hi. I am conducting research on the topic "Promoting Open Access in Higher Institutions of Learning. Challenges and Prospects". All necessary Ideas are welcome. Thanks!
A lot of universities are now considering to blacklist MDPI journals. On the other hand, most of MDPI publications have a fast turn around time and researchers like it. They are open access too. But if universities continue to discourage publishing in MDPI journals, what is the way out?
Within the frame of the postdoctoral project INFRA-ART, an integrated spectral library exclusively dedicated to artists' and cultural heritage materials has been developed. The INFRA-ART Spectral Library (https://infraart.inoe.ro/) is an open-access resource that was developed to support other specialists within the heritage science field that work with XRF, infrared (ATR-FTIR), or Raman spectroscopic techniques.
The database is an ongoing compilation of spectra that contains at this moment over 1000 ATR-FTIR and XRF spectra, and a preliminary dataset of Raman spectra, linked to over 500 reference materials (paint components, artist color paints, etc.). The database is keyword searchable and an interactive spectra viewer that allows users to visualize and analyze the spectra of each sample is available.
To support universal access and the reuse of scientific data, the database follows the European Commission’s recommendation on access to scientific information as well as the FAIR Guiding Principles on research data that result from publicly funded research. Users can request access to spectral data of interest via e-mail and subsequent completion of a File Access Request Form.
We invite the cultural heritage research community and other specialists in art history, conservation, or materials science to access and share this resource. Of course, your feedback is welcome. Please share your thoughts, questions, and suggestions below or e-mail us at email@example.com.
I wondered if anyone might know of any corpus of US literary works 1) that would cover at least two centuries; 2) which would be open access (or associated with a reasonable access fee; and 3) which would enable searching for basic linguistic patterns (especially when used with Nvivo)?
We'd like to look at how voices have been employed in the construction of literary characters over time.
Many thanks for any tips,
As you can note day by day many Journals have been transformed from hybrid submission (subscription and open access) to only open access option. Although the many advantageous benefits of the open-access choice for both authors and journals, however, many authors have not the economical resources (budget or financial support) for this choice. This matter forms an additional hurdle for the researchers working in limited resource labs. The difference in the available resources constitutes a new barrier of inequality and equal opportunity among researchers.
Is it possible to achieve equality for researchers in access to publication?
Are there organizations supporting the publication with open access option?
Are there any scientific journals in the field of ruminants/animals/agriculture/veterinary sciences with open access and with no Article Processing Charge for authors (free)?
Can anyone provide the list of some SCI/SCIE journals that are published in Open Access, do not involve any processing fee for authors and include Geodesy/Surveying Engineering (or Engineering Geodesy) within their aims & scope as well.
Thanks in advance
