The Case for Open Access Publishing Open Access stands for unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse. Most publishers own the rights to the articles in their journals. Anyone who wants to read the articles must pay to access them. Anyone who wants to use the articles in any way must obtain permission from the publisher and is often required to pay an additional fee. Although many researchers can access the journals they need via their institution and think that their access is free, in reality it is not. The institution has often been involved in lengthy negotiations around the price of their site license, and re-use of this content is limited. Paying for access to content makes sense in the world of print publishing, where providing content to each new reader requires the production of an additional copy, but online it makes much less sense to charge for content when it is possible to provide access to all readers anywhere in the world. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology applies the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license to works we publish. This license was developed to facilitate open access – namely, free immediate access to, and unrestricted reuse of, original works of all types. Under this license, authors agree to make articles legally available for reuse, without permission or fees, for virtually any purpose. Anyone may copy, distribute, or reuse these articles, as long as the author and original source are properly cited. The Benefits of Open Access Research Accelerated Discovery: With open access, researchers can read and build on the findings of others without restriction. Open Access expedites immediate access to your scholarly work. Open Access is optimized for visibility through internet search engines, resulting in being more frequently cited, more visible, and receiving greater impact. Public Enrichment: Much scientific and medical research is paid for with public funds. Open access allows taxpayers to see the results of their investment.Open Access provides the global community barrier- and cost-free access to your important research. Open-access is more important than ever before. Improved Education: Open access means that teachers and their students have access to the latest research findings throughout the world.Open Access content is archived and digitally preserved. Open Access satisfies many requirements to publicly disseminate the results of peer reviewed research. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology is a scholarly open access, peer reviewed, interdisciplinary, monthly and fully refereed international journal focusing on theories, methods and applications in Science, Engineering and Technology. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology aims to maintain a rapid editorial procedure and a rigorous peer review system. The submitted articles are peer reviewed within approximately three months of submission and the accepted full text articles are published on the internet immediately upon receiving the final versions free of charge. World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology enables fast dissemination of high quality scientific and technical information freely available worldwide.
