Open Access Policy and Information

All research articles published in JoPC are fully open access: immediately freely available to read, download and share. Articles are published under the terms of a Creative Commons license which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

An Open Access Publication is one that meets the following two conditions:

  • The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship , as well as the right to make small numbers of printed copies for their personal use.
  • A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable open access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving (for the biomedical sciences, PubMed Central is such a repository).
What is open access?

Open Access (OA) is an important way to make research findings freely available for anyone to access and view. It serves authors and the wider community by publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed open access content that allows readers to redistribute, re-use and adapt the content in new works.
JoPC publishes fully open access Journals and Articles, feedback and reviews or any other content on this platform which are available and accessible by everyone everywhere free of cost. In order to provide Open access Journals and articles the finances are usually covered by authors through article processing charges (APC).

Benefits of open access publishing
  • Citation:- Articles tend to have a much bigger impact in the short-term compared to “subscription-only” work. The long-term impact has been found to be similar, with some studies showing a slightly larger impact for open-access articles.
  • Faster dissemination:- You get faster dissemination of your research results.You fulfill eventual open access mandates from research funders. Publishing fees/APC’s are in many cases prepaid, 
  • Unlimited Access:- Most journals and repositories do not impose access costs on the reader. Thus price barriers are substantially lowered or removed entirely. Authors are thus granted the ability to address a wider audience without the corresponding expenditure. The reach of the articles or materials increases tremendously since readers can retrieve it regardless of their economic status or geographical location.
  • Rapidity:- The research results can be made immediately available to not just others within that community but also those beyond, including other scientists and laypeople.
  • Open Search Options:- An article can typically be more easily located if it is in the open-access domain. In particular, searching within the article or recommending and sharing it with others, is facilitated to a great extent.
  • Author and Institution Visibility:- More readers can become aware of authors who publish in open access journals as opposed to subscription-only journals. Institutions can enhance their profile by participating in or hosting open-access publishing. Funding agencies supporting the research can achieve more prominence.
  • Publishing Costs:- Since open-access publications are usually less expensive to produce and disseminate, both journals and publishers can benefit. In some cases, authors may be required to pay enhanced publication charges. Many traditional publishers have made part of their material open access which has enhanced their visibility and attracted subscriptions.
Benefits for Authors

Widest Introduction to Global Community

Strives to promote your research to a wide audience. The scientific community and the common people can have unlimited access to all published contents in journals, which are fully free as soon as it is published on the webpage. These journals' broad readership gives authors the opportunity to convey the importance of their work to the wider science community in addition to specialists in their field.

Share your research with the world

Under an Open Access, CC-BY license, you own the copyright to your work. So you’re free to share it anywhere, anytime, with anyone. There is never a fee for readers to access, download, or share your article more widely.

Faster Processing Time

Modern times demand that processing times are minimized so that authors are able to publish their work quickly. JoPC introduced an open access system enabling authors to get their work published rapidly as per their desire. For journals with paid access, the processing times will match international standards ensuring timely publication of quality manuscripts.

Inform the future

Open Access allows everyone to benefit from your advancements, not just a select group of other researchers. Students, funders, policymakers, and readers from around the world all have a stake in science. By increasing visibility and access to research, we can amplify its power to inform, educate, and enlighten. 

High Standard Review Process

All Open Access journals provide a high standard of peer review, selecting original research which is high quality and relevant for its discipline. Each journal is editorially independent with its own Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board who lead journal strategy and take publication decisions on all submissions.
