About Our Open Access Policy
Open access was established with the goal of creating a dependable platform and providing unrestricted access to scientific literature for the rapid dissemination of recent updates. Our Journal is an open access journal which grants the users to access complete article content immediately after publication, with CC BY NC rights. Open access publications are freely and permanently available online to anyone with an internet connection.

Benefits of Open access:
- Freely available: Anyone can access open access publications online for free. This increases visibility and, as a result, uptake and use of the published work.
- Stimulating Effects: The rapid dissemination of results not only energises similar research but also inspires others to make inroads into new areas that may open up as a result. Access to research materials from all fields encourages interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research.
- Impact and Citations: Articles have a much greater impact in the short term than "subscription-only" work. The long-term impact has been found to be similar, with some studies indicating that open-access articles have a slightly larger impact.
- Author and Institution Visibility: Authors who publish in open access journals rather than subscription-only journals may become more well-known to readers. Institutions can amplify their profile by actively engaging in or organising open-access publishing
