Open-Access Journal

Open-access journals are scholarly journals that are available online to the reader "without financial, legal, or technical barriers. Some are subsidized, and some require payment on behalf of the author. Subsidized journals are financed by an academic institution, learned society or a government information center; those requiring payment are typically financed by money made available to researchers for the purpose from a public or private funding agency, as part of a research grant.

Types of Open Access

White Literature White literature is peer reviewed, published articles.
Grey Literature Grey literature is preprints or internal 'know-how' material.
Preprints Preprints are articles that are pre-peer-review.
Postprints Postprints are articles that are post-peer-review.
eprints eprints can be either preprints or postprints in electronic form.
Green Route The author can self archive at the time of submission whether the publication is grey literature, peer reviewed journal publication, peer reviewed conference proceedings or a monograph.
Golden Route The author or author's institution can pay a fee to the publisher at the time of publication, the publisher thereafter making the material available "free" at the point of access.

In successively looser senses, open-access journals may be considered as:


Journals entirely open access


Journals with research articles open access (hybrid open-access journals)


Journals with some research articles open access (hybrid open-access journals)


Journals with some articles open access and the other delayed access


Journals with delayed open access (delayed open-access journals)


Journals permitting self-archiving of articles

Advantages of Open Access for Authors

High Availability and High Visibility of open access articles is guaranteed through the free and unlimited accessibility of the publication over the Internet without any restrictions. Everyone can freely access and download the full-text of all articles published with IJESET. Readers, mostly other researchers, of open access journals do not need to pay any subscription or pay-per-view charges to read articles published by IJESET. open access publications are also more easily included and searchable in search engines and indexing databases.

Higher Citation Impact
of open access articles due to their high publicity and availability. It has been demonstrated that open access publications are more frequently cited.

Less Costly — Open Access Publishers cover their costs for editorial handling and editing of a paper by charging authors' institutes or research funding agency. The cost of handling and the production of an article are covered through the one-time payment of nominal publication fee for each accepted article.

Faster Publication
in IJESET's open access journals is achieved by the online-only availability. Accepted articles are typically published online more rapidly in IJESET journals than traditional, subscription-based and printed journals [4].

Financing Open-Access Journals
Open-access journals divide into those that charge publication fees and those that do not.

Fee-based open-access journals

Fee-based open-access journals require payment on behalf of the author. The money might come from the author but more often comes from the author's research grant or employer.

Why does IJESET have article publication charges (APC)

IJESET is published in full open access format. The scientific community and the general public can unlimitedly and immediately access all content published in our journals for free as soon as it is published on the Internet. This means that IJESET does not have any income from selling subscriptions to print or online versions of its journals or from charging "pay-per-view" fees. Therefore, IJESET needs to defray its editorial and production costs by collecting processing charges from authors' institutes or research funding bodies. IJESET is committed to keep its open access publication charges at a minimum level. Already now, IJESET's charges—if calculated per page—are much lower than the revenues per published page that traditional, subscription-based academic publishers can generate.
