Open Access Policy and Ethics
Open Access Policy
Open access is an ongoing publication practice which differs in the way traditional methods of publishing papers to the public get submitted, reviewed, authenticated and finally published. In Open Access publication model neither readers nor a reader’s institution are charged for access to articles or other resources. Users are free to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles without requiring a subscription to the journal in which these articles are published.
EDUindex follows the Gold Open Access model. The publication cost should be covered by the author’s institution or research funds. These Open Access charges replace subscription charges and allow the EDUindex to make the valuable published materials freely accessible to all interested online visitors, especially the researchers and young scholars from developing countries. EDUindex noticed that more than 45% of the EDUindex journals readers are from developing countries.
