Advantages of Open Access for Authors
The High Availability and Visibility of our open access articles is guaranteed through the free and unlimited accessibility of the publication over the Internet. Everyone can freely access and download the full text of all articles published with ANSER: readers of open access journals, i.e., mostly other researchers, do not need to pay any subscription or pay-per-view charges to read articles published by ANSER. Open access publications are also more likely to be included in search engines and indexing databases.
The Higher Citation Impact of open access articles results from their high publicity and availability. Open access publications are demonstrably more frequently cited.
Faster Publication in ANSER's open access journals is achieved by online-only availability. Accepted articles are typically published online more rapidly in ANSER journals than those of traditional, subscription-based and printed journals are.
